Default Digs, Excavations, and current Archaeological resources

I wanted to start a thread for capturing some sites of some of the top Egyptologist and their findings. Egypt is forever revealing Her secrets through the digs and excavations of tombs and temples. It is through these ventures that we are able to enrichen our knowledge of the ancient culture, life, and spirit of the time.

The current premier Egyptologist hails from Egypt himself, Dr Zahi Hawass. He has a long and distiguished career in the study and archaeology of the Ancient Egyptians. His site is a wealth of knowledge and updates on current discoveries being made in Egypt.

The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago is a wealth of information on current digs and projects ongoing in Egypt.

The Abydos project of 2003 is a very informative read.

It is a tragedy that so many of Egypt's secret shall remain hidden due to the ECHO and their stringent excavation laws. The politics of the area interfere with the countries great history.
