John Ward and Maria Nilsson are archaeologists running the excavations at the ancient quarry known as Gebel el Silsila. They believe stone from their quarry was transported along the Nile to Karnak, home to the largest ancient religious site in Egypt. Quarry marks, carvings made by the workers on the stones, appear to link the two sites.
