1913-14 Meir

Type of fieldwork: 
Archaeological Survey
Epigraphic Survey
Illustration and Recording
Season summary: 

The season ran from 1 November to 9 January 1914, primarily so Blackman could correct his proofs for the first volume of  Rock Tombs of Meir. Blackman also made a catalogue of the tomb-chapels of the nomarchs of Cusae and their court. Although the primary purpose was to record and copy the tomb-chapels but Blackman also cleared debris from the chapels. F. F. Ogilvie planned to come to paint at Meir in April.
