Is this simply a research based database as a result of grant appropriations or is it in conjunction with a current exhibition at MFA Boston? Is there a tie in with Reisner's excavations at the Giza plateau in the 1920's? I'm on an iPhone right now so trying to read the link is not terribly realistic on this tiny little screen.

From a quick glance, I was very impressed with the people involved.

My understanding is this project is the result of support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and they seemed to have highlighted.......




The single longest-running Giza excavation took place between 1902 and 1947, undertaken jointly by Harvard University and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA). Directed by George A. Reisner, the "Harvard–MFA Expedition" unearthed thousands of Giza artifacts, and amassed the largest archaeological documentary archive of any Giza expedition. This archive is housed primarily in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and, to a lesser extent, at Harvard University.

You could lose hours in that website.


I've just been browsing through some of the images in photo archive and was surprised by how many of the photographs of burials were mislabelled or lack meaningful identification. Dozens of excavated burials, photographed with no ID.

I also notice that the site can't handle having two 'enlarge' windows open at the same time on one account. It works fine with just one at a time. Once I get the hang of the site, it'll be easier to look for whatever takes my fancy.

One of my first impressions is the sheer number of photographs in one place is startling. Thousands and thousands of them! All of Reisner's articles as pdfs too. The open-access exemplifies the ethos behind museums. Thanks for the link.

Yep they plucked images out of old studies but didn't cite where they came, about 28,000 images I believe
