In a recent article, I mentioned the recent field season by the Univeristy of Helsinki, Finland led by Jaana Toivari-Viitala examining the huts up in the Theban Hills over towards Deir el-Medina, and covered by ScienceDaily. I know my Finnish readers wanted more on this, so I have uploaded some photographss of their work, taken by David Hay. Many thanks again to David. Rather than slow load times by including several large photos directly in this post, I have hosted them elsewhere and just given the links below. The images are high resolution and about 4Mb each. They will probably shrink to fit your browser window when you open them, but if you click on them then they will expand to their full size.

PS. Anybody interested in the huts of Deir el-Medina should visit Lenka Peacock's excellent site. There is a permanent link to her site on my links page.
