(2020) A documentation, using latest technologies, of the late anthropoid sarcophagi housed in Cairo’s Grand Egyptian Museum This joint publication project of Cairo University and the University of Tübingen scholars uses modern technologies, including electronic drawing boards, photo merging, and 3-D modeling, to catalogue the late anthropoid sarcophagi housed in Cairo’s Grand Egyptian Museum. Most of this collection was previously known only from the entries in M.-L. Buhl’s The Late Egyptian Anthropoid Stone Sarcophagi (Copenhagen, 1959). This catalogue draws on the efforts of eight team members, each chapter prepared by a joint Egyptian–German team, with the drawings made by the Egyptians and the translations provided by the Germans. The Egyptian Museum photographer Ahmed Amin provided the teams with hundreds of photographs, which were later merged together with the help of Adobe Photoshop. The hieroglyphic texts were composed by JSesh. This, the first catalogue of the Grand Egyptian Museum, was made possible through financial support from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
