Labib Habachi

American University in Cairo Press

Habachi agreed on the revision of his Heqaib manuscript, in which Werner Kaiser suggested to include more of his historical background. But Habachi found the task a bit hard. One of the reasons is his health and the other one is his frustration with Gerhardt Haeny. Haeny explained that “in Habachi's time” archaeological fieldwork was concentrated on grand stone temples and funerary monuments with their rich decoration and wealth of inscriptions, which were believed to exemplify the pharaonic civilization. Gerhardt Haeny's first mistake was his assumption that because Labib Habachi was an Egyptologist of an earlier generation, he was of its mindset. Under cover of a letter to Kaiser dated January 2, 1982, Habachi finally dispatched the last revisions to his manuscript on the Sanctuary of Heqaib to the German Archaeological Institute.
