Project History:
The tomb was commissioned for Anen, an ancient Egyptian priest who served under the reign of Amenhotep III, King of Egypt. ARCE supported a restoration project for the tomb, focused on the tomb’s wall paintings and its overall structural integrity. The project was directed by archaeologist Lyla Pinch-Brock; team members included project architect Nicholas Warner, conservator Ewa Parandowska, photographer and field assistant Edwin C. Brock, and photographer Francis Dzikowski.
