The photographic mission:

The bibliographic research of the scenes of viticulture and winemaking in the ancient Egyptian private tombs resulted in the identification of some unpublished scenes. Furthermore, some of the scenes of viticulture and winemaking were not available for publication, because of copyrights or because they were never drawn or photographed.

Therefore, and under permission of the Permanent Committee of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) of Egypt, the project team planned a photographic survey for the private tombs with viticulture and winemaking scenes all over Egypt in 2013.

The photographic mission has allowed us to complete the analysis of the scenes and their associated texts.

The photographic mission was successfully accomplished between June and December 2013 in 21 archaeological sites in Upper Egypt: Aswan, Luxor and Sohag; Middle Egypt: in Asiut, Miniya and Beni Sueif; and Lower Egypt: Giza.
