Temple of Tawosret, Luxor

Although she doesn't have any details at the moment, Jane Akshar, Luxor resident and blogger, has noticed that temple of Tawosret is being excavated. When she finds out more, I'll put up a link to her new post. Tawosret was the Great Royal Wife of Seti II and step mother of Siptah, and may have acted as regent, as Siptah was very young at the time of his father's death. It is located about half way between the temples of Thutmoses IV and Merenptah. Very little is know of this second temple, which is ruined, and the only items discovered in its ruins to date were ceramic sherds, and small stone and faience plaques.
