Burial Chamber Discovered on Luxor’s West Bank

Browder and Pischikova discovered a large red granite sarcophagus in Karabasken’s burial chamber in June. After a month of excavating the significance of their discovery became apparent. The newly discovered sarcophagus is twelve feet long, eight feet high, five feet wide and weighs an estimated 20,000 lbs. (10 tons). The red granite sarcophagus is indicative of Karabasken status among the Kushite royalty of Egypt’s 25th Dynasty.
Mr. Browder will give a full report on the 2016 excavation season, and his recent visit of the Kushite tombs in Sudan, on September 21, 2016. The event will be held at 7:00 pm at the Thurgood Marshall Center, 1816 12th Street, NW Washington, DC.
