Violaine and Dini Confer

It's really cold this morning. Violaine enjoys her morning tea while speaking with Dina about work in her square.

Fatma Dressed for Cold Weather   Preparing to Move Stone Blocks

I told you it was cold. Fatma looks a bit like she's ready for snow and ice. In the Second Court and on the temple platform Fatma and Kent are preparing to move several large reused 18 th Dynasty blocks. After Kent and Hiroko have consolidated them, these will be moved, so Fatma's team clears the west face to facilitate treatment of the stone.
