Kamil has kindly informed me that Professor Niwinski and the Cliff Mission team expect to be back at Deir e-Bahri in April. One of the main aims is to protect the Temple of Hatshepsut and the other temples below the cliffs from falling boulders. They estimate that there are between 5,000 and 7,000 tonnes of stones which need to be removed from the cliffs. That's a huge task!
