Where The Heck is it? July, 2017

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

There have been a few grumbles that all the CyberScribe ever shows In these photos are pictures of odd and out of the way places, sometimes just a single stone that most of us have never seen.

To make things a little more positive, the CyberScribe would like to remind everybody that after the Ramses the great exhibit here in Dallas in 1989 Dr. Robert Ritner, well known to people in our chapter, was given the task of making a stele to be placed in Fair Park. His stele is still there and everyone should go and find it. As shown in this photo, this stele has not weathered well.

Perhaps you might wish to make a few comments, for example:

1. Do you think this might be located somewhere besides Fair Park, and if so, where do you believe it stands.

2. What very important announcement is made in the text of this stone?

If you think you know the answers to these questions, bring them to the July meeting of the ARCE Chapter and if you are correct, you may win a prize!
