Website of the Week: Hopkins in Egypt Today

For the first 'Website of the Week' of 2011, I have chosen the homepage of the Johns Hopkins expedition at the Mut Precinct at Karnak, Luxor, directed by Dr. Betsy Bryan, Alexander Badawy Professor of Egyptian Art and Archaeology at Johns Hopkins University, and Dr. Violaine Chauvet, Lecturer in Egyptology at the the University of Liverpool.

The team has been working behind the sacred lake of the Mut temple over the past month, and every day they upload a diary entry to the website in order to provide visitors with up-to-the-minute information on what has been found that day, who has been working on which feature, and information on the archaeological techniques which are employed by the team on the site. The diary serves not only as a personal record of achievements during the excavation, but also as a useful tool for students of archaeology and Egyptology in the intricacies of archaeological excavation in Egypt.

Yan Tan Tethera: A rhyme derived from a Brythonic Celtic language used by shepherds to keep sheep in many parts of England and Southern Scotland.

Until the Industrial Revolution, the use of traditional number systems was common among shepherds, especially in the Dales of the Lake District.
