This website aims to provide a visual dictionary for all inscribed tombs at Beni Hassan, a burial site in Middle Egypt, which draws on published and unpublished material collected by the Macquarie University expedition (2009-present). The Beni Hassan Visual Dictionary contains accessible descriptions of the various themes, scenes, details and architectural features in a tomb, Jsesh transcriptions, transliteration, and translation of the hieroglyphic inscriptions, in addition to high resolution zoomable photographs and line drawings.

The Beni Hassan @ Macquarie project is supported by an Australian Research Council Discovery Project grant from 2016-2018, and is a collaboration between Macquarie University and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The project team is comprised of academic staff and a student centred research group, the Beni Hassan Research Group, which aims to develop employability skills in Ancient History students and enable active, authentic and collaborative engagement with research undertaken at Macquarie University.
