The "Harwa 2001" ONLUS Cultural Association presents
 The Tomb of Harwa

Report of the 1995 Season


The main aim of this first season's study of the tomb of Harwa (TT 37) was to analyse and copy the texts on the walls of the pillared rooms of the tomb. This work took place from October 30th to November 7th, 1995.

I would like to thank Carlo Cataldi Tassoni (architect), Carlo Usai (conservator) and Franco Lovera (photographer) of the Archaeological Mission of the "La Sapienza" University in Rome who provided assistance. I would also like to thank Prof. Alessandro Roccati, director of the Archaeological Mission of the Rome University, who accorded the permission for them to help in the work.

A warm thanks also to the staff of the Qurnah Inspectorate of the Supreme Council of Antiquities for their help and their kindness, especially the Director Sabri Abd el-Aziz, the Chief Inspector Mohammed A. El-Bialy, and the Inspector Aly Abd el-Gelil, who followed the work.
