Join us for a journey into the ancient world with Dr José Galán, a renowned Spanish Egyptologist and director of the Djehuty Project.

Dr Galán visits Boola Bardip on his Australian tour, bringing his renowned expertise in Egyptology. Since 2002, he has led the Spanish mission excavating Dra Abu el-Naga, a burial site for the Theban Royal family and elite of the 17th and early 18th Dynasty. The Djehuty Project focuses on the tombs of Hery, who managed granaries for Ahhotep, and Djehuty, who served Pharaoh Hatshepsut as a treasury official.

Discover this historic site's ongoing findings and challenges, highlighting connections to powerful ancient women.
