The Munro Archives

0
0

Introduction

This website is dedicated to the archives of the excavations of part of the oldest section of the extensive cemetery of Egypt’s capital Memphis, known as Saqqara, nearby Cairo. These excavations were directed by Prof. Dr. Peter Munro (Kestner Museum in Hannover, Germany) and more than 20 years of work, generously financed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, has produced an extensive, well organised Archive. Unfortunately, due to Munro’s premature death in 2008 (Obituary), much of his work in Egypt remains unpublished. In 2012, the Archive was transferred to the Netherlands with the intention to make it available and publish the hitherto unpublished parts (Munro Archive Project [MAP]).

Responsibility

With the transfer of the Archive an agreement was reached by the temporary board of the Archive (Munro’s heirs, Dr. Christian Loeben – contact person: http://Christian.Loeben.at.Hannover-Stadt.de and Orell Withuhn) and MAP. Part of this agreement was the assignment by the board to develop a website to make the Archive available for scientific research (see below). Thus, the website and its contents is exclusively meant for scientific use. The board, as principal, bears full responsibility.
