Chapter Summary

The greater temple complex of Karnak is undoubtedly one of the most thoroughly documented physical areas preserved from the antiquity of Egypt. The mapping project was carried out primarily in the 1980s and 90s and illustrates the state of the Temple of Mut before further work was done in its interior by the Hopkins staff. The layout of the temple follows a familiar pattern: entrance colonnade, pylon with monumental gate, two courts, and the main structure with multiple chambers. The work of Dr. Bryan and her colleagues has revealed a great deal more about the history and physical structure of the temple, where over two decades of work by the Brooklyn Museum team laid the important groundwork for further exploration.
