University of Brussels Expedition in the Theban Necropolis

Since 1999, the MANT undertook the conservation, study and publication of two tombs in the Theban necropolis (Luxor west bank), belonging to high dignitaries of the reign of Amenhotep II (New Kingdom, ca. 1425 BC). These two monuments, TT29 (Amenemope) and TT96 (Sennefer), are studied under a double viewpoint, both synchronic (architectural study, archaeology of practices...) and diachronic (history of the occupation of this part of the necropolis, from the construction of the tomb until the present). An important part of the project is devoted to the conservation of the wall paintings in both tomb chapels.
