Daily Discoveries

We should come home from adventures, and perils, and discoveries every day with new experience and character. 
 Henry David Thoreau, American essayist, poet and philosopher (1817-1862) 

Excitement filled my last morning at the Karnak excavations as the team moved from the Roman bath area just a little to the South to concentrate on the mud-brick walls of a Ptolemaic building that may reveal a third bath complex. It might also be a priest's house. Who knows? In any case, the area is rich with pottery, ceramic figurines and coins. I will wait with baited breath to hear of their new discoveries, which seem to happen on a daily basis here.
