According to Dr Felix Arnold, Field director of the mission, about 30 blocks found during the excavations of the German Archaeological Institute and the Swiss Institute of Architectural and Archaeological Research on Ancient Egypt in Cairo come from the bark station of Queen Hatshepsut. The construction was simple and consisted of a bark room surrounded by pillars. Hatshepsut was represented as a woman which dates the structure to the early years of her reign.
