Afternoon Lecture
Secrets of the Mountain-of-Anubis: Recent Discoveries at the Tomb and Mortuary Complex of Pharaoh Senwosret III
In recent years, excavations have been going on inside the subterranean tomb of Senwosret III at South Abydos, as well as a program of expanded investigation of the wider landscape and settlement of the mortuary complex of Wah-Sut-Khakaure. In this lecture, Dr. Josef Wegner, Associate Curator, Penn Museum Egyptian Section, looks at the current work on the subterranean tomb located beneath the sacred peak of the Mountain-of-Anubis, including the ARCE-funded restoration and site protection project. The lecture will also look at other activities at Abydos, including work on subsidiary mastabas, the Middle Kingdom town site excavations, as well as the exciting results from excavations of the private cemeteries. Sponsored by the American Research Center in Egypt—Pennsylvania chapter. Admission: $8, general public; $5, Penn Museum members; free for ARCE-PA members.
