The Middle Kingdom Theban Project: six seasons of archaeological and epigraphic work in the cemeteries of Deir el-Bahari and Asasif (Luxor)

In the last six years, the University of Alcalá Expedition and its Middle Kingdom Theban Project have set up a multidisciplinary and international team of experts that is conducting archaeological excavation, epigraphic work, and conservation in several tombs in the area of Deir el-Bahari, with the major goal of improving our knowledge on the historical circumstances of the later part of the Eleventh Dynasty and the beginning of the so-called “Classical Period”. In this talk, Antonio Morales shall present the major aims and strategies developed to respond to the main questions of the project. Documenting, studying, and publishing several of these First Intermediate Period and Middle Kingdom monuments from Deir el-Bahari and Asasif will no doubt allow scholars to have a better understanding of the role of Thebes in the construction of the classical age in pharaonic history.
