Eighth Field Season (Autumn 2014)
The very short eighth field season of the Musawwarat Graffiti Project continued the systematic documentation strategy developed during the previous seasons, including the descriptive documentation of all preserved graffiti in their location context. Documentation focussed on Complex 500, especially on densely decorated and well preserved walls with multiple superimpositions and juxtapositions, which are hoped to help establish a relative chronology of graffiti (making) at Musawwarat. These densely decorated (and labour intensive) walls include the southern walls of the so-called 'West Chapel': 521/517 and 520/516.
