We are very fortunate to work alongside many talented colleagues in Egypt. In our work, we intend to cooperate with the Ministry of Antiquities to study, preserve, and promote the cultural heritage of Egypt for generations to come. All aspects of our work depend highly on the collaboration with the Ministry. We extend a heartfelt thanks to all members of the Ministry of Antiquities, the Museum Sector, and the Aswan Inspectorate, especially Dr. Khaled el-Enany, Mr. Hany Ahmed abo El azm, Mr. Mohamed Abdelbadie, Dr. Nashwa Gaber, Dr. Mohammed Ibrahim, Mr. Abdul Minhem, Mr. Nasr Salama Ibrahim, Mr. Osama abd ellatief abd elhalim, Mr. Shazly Ali Abd elaziem, Ms. Ilham Salah al-Din, Mr. Hany Salakh, Mr. Sayed El-Rawy, Mr. Adel Kelany.
We would also like to thank all of our Ministry Inspectors who happily worked with us on a daily basis, even when we told them we had to leave Aswan at 4:30am to make it to the site on time. Thank you for your support and dedication, especially Moataz Sayed, Mahmoud Mokhtar, Kareema Fehmy, Takhseen Mohamed Ateia, and Mohammed Saleh. We would also like to thank our friends out at the granite mines, especially Mahmoud and Adel.
We also want to thank our landlord in Egypt, Mr. Mahmoud Hussein, who accepted every crazy aspect of living with an excavation team in his house.
