Egyptologist Betsy Bryan and her Johns Hopkins University team are gearing up for another field season at the Mut Temple Precinct, a place of archaeological wonders in the environs of ancient Luxor. During last year's expedition, archaeologists turned up a 3,400-year-old statue of Tutankhamun's grandmother, Queen Tiy. Over the years, Bryan has also gleaned lots of information about sex, drugs and rock and roll in ancient Egypt. You can keep tabs on this year's exploits by checking out Johns Hopkins' Egypt expedition diary - and don't forget to browse the archives as well. For a recap of last year's highlights, sit back and watch this audio slide show.
