The "Harwa 2001" ONLUS
Cultural Association presents
Spring - Summer 2004
The vestibule of the Tomb of Harwa (TT 37) was used
as magazine by the MMA Archaeological Mission to store monuments – mainly
fragmentary – recovered during excavations in the Palace of Amenhotep III
(Malqata) and in the mortuary temple of the Queen Hatshepsut (Deir el-Bahri).
Some of the objects were briefly published by W.C. Hayes (W.C. Hayes,
Inscriptions from the Palace of Amenhotep III, JNES 10, 1951, pp. 231
– 242). The article is mainly focussed on the jar-stoppers bearing
hieroglyphic inscriptions, the fragments of a statue of Amun-Re and some
other inscribed architectural features. Hayes states that some monuments
(the statue of Amun-Re) were found during the 1916-1917 season and that
excavations closed in 1920. From this information it is safe to assume
that the closing of the vestibule took place after the latter date.
