The seventh excavation season of the Archaeological Expedition to Wad Ben Naga focused on the continued excavations of the so-called Typhonium (WBN 200). A substantial part of the main sanctuary of the temple was uncovered, yielding large amount of finds including statues of Amun and Mut and god Apedemak. Excavations proceeded also to the south of the pylon of the temple. The expedition carried out re-excavation and continued conservation in the area of the western entrance of the Palace of Queen Amanishakheto (WBN 158), and geological survey of the hinterland of the site.
