Abu Rawash, Early Dynastic Cemetery M

Yann Tristant

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Eight kilometres northwest of the Giza Plateau, the Abu Rawash region contains archaeological remains from different periods ranging from Late Predynastic to Coptic times. These are almost exclusively funeral structures covering all phases of the Pharaonic period, and places of worship for the most recent periods. The location of the site in the ancient Memphite royal necropolis is part of a region whose memory must be preserved, as it is currently threatened by urbanisation and limestone quarrying.
