Dig site Be sure to visit Nigel Strudwick’s Tomb of Senneferi site. It has ongoing reports on Strudwick’s excavations at a brilliant tomb in the Valley of the Nobles, Egypt. These tombs are not generally as well known as the royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings, but many are often lavishly decorated and in a wonderful state of preservation. Many of the texts therein also describe aspects of the daily lives of nearly-ordinary Egyptians that are often missing from royal tombs. Be sure to check out the “Dig diaries” section to get some idea of what really goes on when one goes to work in Egypt.
Strudwick’s general Egyptology site, Egyptology Resources maintained by the University of Cambridge, is also an excellent site for finding out more about Egyptology.
