We have reached the end of our second season and, although we are tired, we are also sad to leave. It has been a wonderful time during which the whole team not just worked but enjoyed themselves immensely. Every day we learned something new and we feel that this site has a special place in all our hearts.

We have many thanks to give, especially to our Egyptian colleagues who are fortunate enough to stay in this land we love.

We wish to express our gratitude to the representatives of the Ministry of State for Antiquities in Cairo for their generous support and assistance in this project. We also express our appreciation to the Inspectorate of the West Bank of Luxor for their kind support, and particularly to Abd el Hakim Carrar, General Director of the Antiquities of Upper Egypt.

Our special thanks go to the Inspector assigned to us, Mohamed Abu El Wafa Beabesh for his help with any problems and his contribution to the work of the Mission. A person of integrity who earned the admiration of all members.

Here we show some photos of the closing session and of the team.
