Chapter Summary

From 2001 to 2007, the Franco-Egyptian center has undertaken new archaeological excavations in the central area of Karnak, between the Akhmenu to the east and the 3rd Pylon to the west. In Gabolde's hypothesis for the placement of Senwosret I's temple, the facade's portico is set at the location of the eastern part of Hatshepsut's suite. The lack of a uraeus on the crown is very rare in reliefs of Senwosret I's, while the three figures of Amenhotep I preserved on the lintel of the monumental south gate have none on their crowns. Early photographs show that fragments of a calcite socle were found, very deeply buried, east of the granite threshold n°4 in the so-called "Middle Kingdom" courtyard. The excavations made between the so-called "Middle Kingdom" courtyard and the 3rd Pylon, have shown that this area was very likely occupied since the beginning of the Middle Kingdom.
