Mortuary landscapes and social change in the Teti Cemetery at Saqqara

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther chapter contributionResearch

Abstract

Over the last 80 years, the Teti Cemetery at Saqqara has yielded many minor burials belonging to the inhabitants of ancient Memphis. The importance of these graves is often overlooked amid the riches of built tombs belonging to the elite. However, the renewal of excavations by the Australian Centre for Egyptology in the early 1980s and beyond has provided important new information about the anthropology of the local population, particularly for the New Kingdom.
