This chapter discusses the houses of al-Hurubat. Among these houses, two earlier dwellings, Wilkinson's tomb and Yanni's mud-brick house, were imbued with symbolism. Both were very different from each other. Their difference was not only architectural; they were also in stark contrast conceptually. Wilkinson's tomb dwelling provided a base for an epigraphic study of the surrounding tombs. Yanni's mud-brick house was essentially a collecting point for and a staging post in the movement of antiquities. Symbolized by the methodological opposition of both house types, and despite their shared history and mutual dependence, both communities—archaeologists and Qurnawi—and the different interests they represent, have largely viewed each other with suspicion. This chapter continues this discussion further in detail and also deals with Egyptology-induced labor relations at al-Hurubat.

Keywords:   al-Hurubat, Wilkinson's tomb, Yanni's mud-brick house, epigraphic study, archaeologists, Qurnawi
