Summary/Abstract: The Polish–Egyptian conservation effort, coupled with documentation and digging, was continued in the Royal Mortuary Cult Complex on the Upper Terrace of the Temple of Hatshepsut in Deir el-Bahari for two successive seasons, in 2008/2009 and 2009/2010. The lighting system in the Northern Chamber of Amun-Re was set up finally, completing the conservation of this cult place. Documentation work in the Main Sanctuary of Amun-Re was supported additionally with 3D scanning technology. Osirides, sandstone sphinxes, and related sculptures of Hatshepsut were also studied. On the Middle Terrace, the Hathor Shrine vestibule was subjected to the first stages of static consolidation and conservation.
