During the Franco-Tuscan Expedition to Egypt (1828-29), Jean-François Champollion and Ippolito Rosellini, beside recording ancient Egyptian monuments, also carried on excavations in some sites, mainly in the area of ancient Thebes and its necropolis. Very little, however, was known of their archaeological explorations so far. In recent years, crossed investigations on the unpublished manuscripts of Ippolito Rosellini, the objects he brought in Tuscany and their relationship with those in France, joined to the archaeological study of the Theban necropolis, allow to reconstruct some of the contexts the Expedition found and their burial assemblage.
