World Archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum: a characterization

World Archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum: a characterization | Egiptología | Scoop.it
Between 2009 and 2012, Dr Dan Hicks (Curator of Archaeology and University Lecturer) led a collections-based project that developed the first overview of the range and research potential of the Museum's world archaeology collections.

The project - Characterizing the World Archaeology Collections of the Pitt Rivers Museum - was funded by a grant of £116,325 from the John Fell OUP Research Fund and with additional support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (IfA Workplace Bursaries scheme) and the Boise Fund.

The project resulted in a book, published in March 2013 as both hard copy and in open access form. This volume - World Archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum: a characterization - introduces the range, history and significance of the archaeological collections of the Pitt Rivers Museum, and sets out priorities for future research into the collection. Through 29 newly-commissioned essays written by a specialist team, the volume explores more than 136,000 artefacts from 145 countries, from the Stone Age to the modern period, and from England to Easter Island. 

Pioneering a new approach in museum studies - which the project calls "characterization" - this landmark volume is an essential reference work for archaeologists around the world, and a unique introduction to the archaeological collections of one of the world’s most famous museums.

Aladin Fazel's curator insight, May 1, 3:46 AM

Egypt reopened to the public today Lymery graves and his eldest son, Neferbauptah, known as the priests of King Khufu, who ruled about 4,600 years ago.

The two tombs, which have remained closed nearly eight years for restoration, "reflect, through its architectural elements, religious and labor traditions in the Old Egyptian Empire" (2700-2350 BC), he told reporters the Egyptian Minister of Antiquities , Mamdouh to Damati, who presided over the ceremony.

Both burials, contiguous and open doors to the east, back to the V Pharaonic dynasty (2500-2350 BC) and are in the Western Cemetery of the pyramids of Giza, a few meters from the Pyramid of Cheops.

This Egyptian king (2550 BC - 2527 BC) was the second pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty and classical Greek historian Herodotus called Cheops.

Lymery tomb, whose interior walls are adorned with poly chrome scenes, starts in a doorway leading to a small camera connected to a larger one.

A new opening in this chamber communicates with a third room where you can see a false door that symbolizes the threshold between the world of the living and the dead, and in the background, the room offerings.

Among the main topics that appear on the walls of the rooms, with predominantly engravings and garnet lines and teal, include a scene depicting wine production, another that shows bearers of offerings of both sexes and third where goods are transported funeral.

To the left of the tomb of Lymery, is that of his son Neferbauptah, which begins with a door, located behind two pillars, and that leads to a room at the bottom of a statue of the deceased, carved in high relief rises.

A second doorway leads the visitor to another camera with two other pillars, which gives way to the funeral hall, whose walls you can see scenes from the collection of taxes, sacrifices and other activities.

The two priests were also known by the title of "supervisor of the great State," "priest Jofu (Egyptian name of Cheops)" and "dear to his master," according to the Ministry of Antiquities detailed occasion of the reopening.

The two tombs, built with limestone blocks within a Mastaba, were closed to visitors in 2007, when they began the restoration work, which was suspended following the revolution of January 25, 2011, and resumed six months ago.

According to the head of the Restoration Department of the Ministry of Antiquities, Wadala abu Al Aila, they were reformed the floor of the first and second room Lymery tomb, whose walls were consolidated.

Meanwhile, in the tomb of Neferbauptah they were cleaned and rehabilitated walls and wooden ceiling of the first room was strengthened.

Both new lighting systems were installed.

The two tombs were discovered by American archaeologist George Reisner in 1925, and are considered as the most beautiful tomb in the Western Cemetery, for its poly chrome scenes that left prints details of daily life of the Ancient Egyptian Empire.
