BERRIEN SPRINGS — An Andrews University archaeologist recently spent two weeks as a field epigraphist, documenting hieroglyphs from one of the most famous inscriptions in Egyptian archaeology.

L.S. Baker Jr., associate director of Andrews University Press, was part of a field project in December to Luxor, Egypt. The site, known to the ancient world as Thebes, the capital of Upper Egypt, is home to the Karnak Temple Complex, including the Great Hypostyle Hall.
