"Preserving Ancient Egypt with Laser Scanning" (POB - Joel Paulson PLS, 01.07.2016)
Quote:
"Under the auspices of the Joint Expedition to Malqata (JEM) and with the permission and assistance of the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities (MSA), the survey team, under Joel Paulson of NV5 (San Diego, CA), performed a laser scan to create a detailed map of the Kings Palace at Malqata, one of the few palace sites known from Ancient Egypt. ...

... One of these lesser known and certainly less visited sites is the palace at Malqata, at the south end of the West Bank archaeological zone.

This locale is actually an entire complex of palaces, estates of the nobility, villages for laborers and staff, a temple, an artificial lake called the Birket Habu, and some poorly understood outlying structures and features. But surprisingly for the size and complexity of this palace, it was built and apparently used by only one pharaoh, Amenhotep III, who reigned from ca. 1350-1325 B.C.

Since 2009, the Joint Expedition to Malqata (JEM), consisting of a team from the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), the William Carlos Museum at Emory University (Atlanta), the Ancient Egyptian Archaeology and Heritage Fund and independent scholars, has been working at the site to study, catalogue and conserve the various components of the site.

The site of Malqata is massive, encompassing approximately 1,300 hectares (3,200 acres). ..."
