Abstract: Paper about the interpretation of a funerary deposit that was uncovered in an earthwork supporting the processional causeway leading from the Nile floodplain to the temple of Thutmose III in Deir el-Bahari. A guiding thread on multi-scale surveys combining successive digital recordings following a “matrioshka doll” scheme, as a basis for historical and anthropological issues. A set of digital models of decreasing size, nested within each other, from the global topographic and geophysical context, through the basic stratigraphy, the assemblage of sarcophagi, the microstratigraphy inside the coffins, the assemblage of the objects accompanying the mummy, to the shape and geometry of its individual artifacts. Geophysics, photogrammetry, prosopography, typology, semiology hand in hand.

Abstract: Paper about the discovery in Al-Asasif, in 2017-2018, of a secondary cemetery installed in a construction earthwork of the causeway leading to the temple of Thutmose III, in Dayr al-Bahri. The assemblage of funerary objects and the decoration of one of the sarcophagi provide complementary evidence of the pattern of offerings by the participants in the funeral, all of whom are female except for one young boy.
