Where appropriate, the cracks were filledby using a special mortar, composed three partssand, two parts lime powder, and one part kaolin Petrie and Hawass 1990:102-105).</p><p>Other changes included the opening to the public the original entrance to the Descending Passageand the Subterranean Chamber the Great Pyramid.All the blocks in the Grand Gallery were recorded indrawings and photographs. A video monitoringsystem was installed in order to control the circulation visitors.The result these efforts by the Egyptian Antiquities Organization is that the monuments the GizaPlateau are now in the best-preserved state since theywere opened to visitors.This phase the site management also includedthe commencement, in 1989, the most scientificconservation and restoration work ever undertaken onthe Great Sphinx. Those who performed the work onthe site include Egyptologists, restorers, an architect,a geologist, and an artist. The work has focused onthree areas:</p><p> The removal modem cement which wasused in previous restorations. This cement createdserious conservation problems, and has been replacedby a much more benign mortar.2. The replacement the large stones that wereadded to the masonry cover around the lower part the Sphinx from 1982 to 1987. These additions hadseriously altered the proportions the monument.</p><p>3. Photogrammetric drawings and old photographs the Sphinx were studied in order to replacethe large stones with ones the same proportions asthose that existed prior to 1982.The mortar used in the current restorationsconsists lime and sand. A quarry fine limestonewas opened in Helwan especially for this restorationwork. The masonry along the southern side theSphinx has been entirely replaced and modeled. Acourse limestone blocks was added beneath theSphinx s chest to support badly-weathered layers natural limestone. Specialists from UNESCO examined the head and neck the Sphinx and reportedthat they were in good condition. The Getty Conservation Institute placed an electronic device to monitorweather and atmospheric conditions on the back the Sphinx. The Institute Astronomy and Geophysics examined the water table, and measured it atseven meters below the base the Sphinx.In March, 1992, an international symposium willbe held at Giza to discuss all current and previousrestoration work on the Sphinx and to proposesolutions to outstanding problems the monument sdeterioration - particularly in the area the chestand upper north side the Sphinx s body.</p><p>In addition to the work described above, twentytombs located in the Eastern and Western Cemeteries the Khufu Pyramid and south the Khafracauseway were restored and opened to the public.3</p><p>Phase The aims Phase III are as follows: All asphalt roads will be removed and replaced by sand roads that blend in with the site.2. All the electricity pylons will be removed andwe will install indirect, ground-based lighting.3. No vehicles will be permitted on the plateauand parking areas will be provided at the base theplateau.4. A picnic area will be established south theThird Pyramid Menkaura, with an entrance via theFayum Road, away from the Giza Plateau.5. A cultural center will be opened near thepyramids to provide information on the history thesite to visitors. 4As the writing this article, the EgyptianAntiquities Organization has already begun Phase III</p><p>in two areas the plateau. East the Great Pyramid, the Organization has removed the asphalt roadthat covered the boat pit located to the north thefoundations the Khufu Mortuary Temple. Theboat pit is being re-excavated and the Khufu Causeway and Queens Pyramids are being cleaned downto the bedrock and restored on the interior.The work around the pyramid GI-a, the northernmost the three Queens pyramids, revealed part the pyramid casing, as well as holes around thepyramid base-line that may have been used forsurveying see Maragioglio and Rinaldi 1965:76;Lehner 1983:7-25). We are also re-excavating andrestoring the Saite pit located in the sanctuary theupper temple Khufu Lauer 1947:245-259). Allthe archaeological features located in this area, suchas the tomb shaft Hetep-heres, the trial passages,and the tombs the nobles, will be cleaned andrestored. The whole site will thus become an openair museum.Another aspect Phase III concerns work in theWestern Cemetery the Khufu Pyramid. We arecontinuing the excavation this site, and cleaningthe debris away from the long and narrow streets.All the tombs will be restored and numbered. During the work in this area, we found the burialwith the plaster mask near tomb G5520. Althoughseveral major expeditions have excavated in theWestern Field, there are still new discoveries to bemade because the enormous quantity debrisencumbering the tombs. A systematic excavation this area is essential to retrieve the stratigraphicsequence the site, as well as to locate and recordhitherto unknown tombs.</p></li><li><p>8/12/2019 The Followers of Horus</p><p> 10/18</p><p>A Burial with an Unusual Plaster Mask 329</p><p>Figure Excavating the Western cemeteryOur first season excavation was carried out inFebruary and March 1989.

The purpose thiswork was to remove the debris from around thetombs and to return fallen stones to their originalpositions. During work in the debris, we found afalse door, in very poor condition, belonging to thetomb Ka-Nefer G5350) PM 2 III: 160). This falsedoor has been cleaned, restored and returned to itsoriginal position in the tomb.</p><p>We also worked south the tomb Ihy G5330)in the southeast c om er the Western Field PIII: 159). We cleared the corridor south this tomband found two tomb shafts. Shaft number I wasencased with mud brick on its four sides to a depth about 3 cm. We found the burial niche in thenorth wall this shaft. contained a skeleton in thefoetal position. In shaft number II, we found redpottery vessels and pottery sherds in the style theFirst Intermediate Period. This shaft has a rectangular shape and a depth about 277 cm. The burialniche in the western wall the shaft was closed with</p><p>mud brick. contained a skeleton lying on its leftside, with the head to the north. In the general area,we also found many pottery sherds dated to theGraeco-Roman Period, as well as two Roman coins.We also began to restore the south side theancient wall dividing the Western Field fromKhafra s pyramid.T he Buria l with the Pl ast er Ma skIn this same season, we began to clear the debrisaround tomb G5520, a stone-built mastaba located inthe northern comer the Western Field beside thefamily mastaba Senedjem-Inty PM 2 III: 164;Reisner 1942:264-5). We discovered a shaft next tothe northern wall the mastaba. A burial niche wasfound in the southern wall the shaft. The nichewas closed with limestone blocks and mud brick.This shaft was lined with gypsum to a depth 89cm., and the remainder the shaft was encased withmud brick for a total depth 180 cm. The burialniche was 75 cm. long and 52 cm. high figures 2and 3). Within this burial niche, we discovered thebody with the plaster mask.
