The files are quite large, but you can download the books in sections (or all at once if you have a fast connection).

It's a fantastic series :D

Yes it's quite an amazing resource. These books are really expensive if you have to order them. I have one of them, and even second hand it was expensive.

The articles by Reisner look interesting too, but I haven't had a chance to check them out.

This is a wonderful resource which Merytre-Hatshepsut has given us, folks. I'm familiar with these books but could never buy them because of their price.

These books have fascinating and valuable material covering years of excavations and research. Frankly I'm stunned that they're allowing us simply to download them as free PDFs! :shock:

I'm also thankful for my high-speed connection, because there's more than 470 MBs of material on that web page.
