its transport to the hidden tomb of Deir el Bahari. The introduction
only is written by Mr. Davis. The excavations and the sarcophagi and
the antiquities discovered are described with, plans and figures by Mr.
Carter, and the publication is enriched by a memoir on the life and
monuments of the Queen by M. Nayille.
Ayrton describes the discovery of the tomb of Siptah near those of
Tausert, Siptah and Eai. Externally there was no indication of i's
existence. The paintings in two corridors are well preserved, but
water had destroyed so much of the rest as has been cleared. P. S. B. A.
Mond describes the tombs cleared at Sheikh Abd el Goumeh in
1903-4, and at the foot of the cliffs south of Deir el Bahari; the paper
is illustrated by numerous plans, copies of inscriptions and funerary
cones, etc., and with photographs. Ann. vi. 65.

Thebes, East Banlc. Borchardt has published a study of the
architectural history of the Karnak temple, tracing successively in detail
the work of the Xllth Dynasty, Amenhotep I (for whose temple, placed
probably at right angles to the axis and quite destroyed by later builders,
the line of the southern pylons was adopted), Tethmosis I, Hatshepsut
and Tethmosis III (two periods). The First pylon is later than the halls
of the First court: the inscription of Sheshonk I at Gebelen must there-
fore refer to other buildings than these. A very important section is
concerned with the mode of raising obelisks, disproving Choisy's
theory according to which, sandbags were placed in grooves in the base
during the operations (see Arcli. Eep. 1903-4, pp. 56-57). Zar Bauge-

Legrain describes the finds at Karnak of 1904-5. The water in the great
pit was kept down by twenty-six shadufs : 200 objects of stone and 8,000
of bronze were found here, and still much remains to be done, although
the excavation penetrated 30 feet below the surface. A summary list
of the finds was printed on p. 23 of the last Report. Bee. de Trav.
