Excavations at Ancient Thebes, 1930/31

"The task of the fourth season of excavations at Medinet Habu (1930/31) was fourfold: to expose the western part of the Ramses III area, which lies behind the Great Temple; to excavate more completely the district in front of the east wall, where in the previous year a small Coptic church was found; to investigate by a test excavation the district to the north of the Ramses III area, outside the Great Girdle Wall; and to excavate and study the palace, the magazines, and adjoining structures in the Ramesseum in order to answer as well as possible certain questions which had arisen at Medinet Habu."
