Summary/Abstract: The main objective of the two seasons of work Polish-Egyptian Mission to the Hatshepsut Temple at Deir el-Bahari was the restoration of the Complex of the Sun Cult, conservation of the Southern Chamber of Amun-Re, and continued documentation work and excavation in the Complex of the Royal Mortuary Cult and an area located to the south of this Complex. The Hathor Retaining Wall, located above and west of the Hathor Shrine Vestibule, was reinforced and partly restored. Epigraphic documentation of the North Wall of the Upper (Festival) Courtyard rounded off the restoration completed in previous seasons. It was also needed to make progress on a study of scenes of the “Beautiful Feast of the Valley”. Documentation studies of scenes including figures of Neferure-Ahmose discovered recently in the Courtyard were dictated by their inherent ideological importance.
