2014 Season of the BYU Egyptian Expedition

We recently had our first excavation team meeting of the academic year. I am excited to see all the good things so many people are doing. We are moving forward on creating our database, on publishing a catalogue of our textiles and some interim work, on conserving the materials we have, on firming up our excavation plans for this year, and on publishing some articles about our pyramid. David Whitchurch and Kerry Muhlestein just submitted and article to the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology about the stelae from the Excavation. Many more good things are in the works.

We have such a great team, and so many things are moving along so well. It is going to be a promising year.

He also lectured on the BYU Egypt Excavation project at a dinner for Emeritus General Authorities and had a wonderful time there.

Abraham and Idrimi

Dr. Gee has an article comparing Abraham and Idrimi come out: http://maxwellinstitute.byu.edu/publications/jbms/?vol=22&num=1&id=652

Thanks to John Gee we might now be able to say of Abraham, "He's been there and done that." Only a John Gee would have noticed the close parallels between Abraham of the book of Genesis and Idrimi, a ruler in northern Syria during the Middle Bronze Age. So unheralded and unique are the parallels tha...
