Memoibs on Excavations.

Legeain reports briefly the work of restoration, &c, at Karnak, in
1896-7 (A.Z. xxxv. 12). From the quay to the temple the avenue of
rams is now clear, as also most of the southern part of the great court.
The temple of Eameses III., adjoining the latter, has also been consolidated.
Two of the most important inscriptions found are published at the same

Petete (Six Temples at Thehes) publishes the results of a season's work
amongst the ruins of the funerary temples on the W. bank. The " Six
Temples " are those of Prince Uazmes and of the Kings Amenhetep II.,
Amenhetep III., Merenptah, Siptab, and of his heiress-queen Tausert.
The chapter on the inscriptions, including the great "Israel Stela" of
Merenptah, is written by Spiegelbeeg. Some very remarkable tools
were found in these excavations, and a helmet, probably Assyrian, and
belonging to the time of Esarhaddon's invasion. There is also an
interesting list of land and sea shells found with ancient remains on
various sites ; the identifications are supplied by Mr. E. A. Smith, of the

De Moegan (Recherches sur les Origines de I'Egypte, II.) describes, inter

Abydos (that of Eha-Sekhemui).

Peteie (Dcshasheh) publishes the results of his work on this site for the
Egypt Exploration Fund. The volume contains copies of the interesting

Shedu, including a unique battle-scene; photographs of the statues
