University of Cambridge Egyptologist Hratch Papazian is shown here copying a short hieroglyphic graffito on the southern face, just above a child’s grave.
Protecting the past
In order to protect the pyramid a fence was built surrounding it. Funds to build it were provided by the American Research Center in Egypt and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
A work in progress
This image shows cleaning work being done on the western face under the supervision of Raïs Eslam from Gurna.
