Renée Friedman is the director of the Expedition to Hierakonpolis, a site well represented in the collections of the Ashmolean Museum and the Griffith Institute Archive. Exploring various aspects of the desert portion of the site, her work has included investigations of the Predynastic ceremonial centre, the cemeteries of the Predynastic elite and commoners, as well as that of a Middle Kingdom Nubian C-group community. In addition, she has overseen the conservation and documentation of the Second Dynasty enclosure of King Khasekhemwy and the Dynastic decorated rock cut tombs at the site. She is currently preparing this material for comprehensive publication.
