Saqqara’s excavation campaign, Egypt

On March, 20th, our team members Francesco Fassi and Alessandro Mandelli join the annual excavation campaign promoted by Museo Egizio di Torino in Saqqara, Egypt.
Our job will be to survey the tombs and the findings, and to help to calculate and analyse the results of the future excavations.
Follow us through the digging diaries by Museo Egizio, out every Friday here. Our adventure will be also posted in the Facebook page of  Museo Egizio  , in our page 3D Survey Group, in the Facebook page of the foundation “Friends of Saqqara”, their website, and in the Facebook page of Rijksmuseum van Oudheden, and their website. 
The diary of the first week by the director of the research project Lara Weiss, is already out:
