Recent Excavations

The excavation site is Dra Abu el-Naga, near Luxor, where researchers from the University of Pisa have been working since 2003, in particular on the “Tomb of Huy”, a priest assigned to the cult of the ruler deified Amenhotep I, and those of the other occupants of the narrow, winding underground tunnels of the tomb.

The excavation area includes a complex of tombs that have had a long period of use, almost a thousand years, and they are providing first-hand data on little-known periods of ancient Egyptian history, such as that between the end of the Second Intermediate Period and the early XVIII Dynasty (1550 – 1450 b.C.).
