Our 2017 season is over and now the analysis begins.
We completed clearing the corridor of the looted secondary burials so once the analysis is complete we will have a demographic profile of who was buried in the tomb. So far, from previous seasons, we have individuals from all age groups. The most common pathology is arthritis, and we have documented several interesting abnormalities including concha bulosa, hydrocephalus, and a possible case of rickets.
While we do our data crunching, I will leave you with a few photos from this year.
Some of the team members went on a hot-air balloon that took us over the area of the tomb at dawn. It was quite a lovely experience.
The red circle is where the tomb is.
