For me, archaeology is not a just a job. It combines everything that I could want - imagination, intellect, action, and adventure.

Hawara Pyramid
Hawara Pyramid

The pyramid of Amenemhat III at Hawara, which was once the largest and most elaborate funerary complex built in the Middle Kingdom. To the south of the pyramid was a large temple that was so complex in design it was known by classical authors such as Herodotus as the “labyrinth.”  After the outer limestone casing was removed from the pyramid, it fell into disrepair and now appears as a mudbrick structure surrounded by pieces of stone that are the remains of the labyrinth. (Photo: SCA)
