Report on the excavation and the finds

Abstract

Excavations at Saqqara in 1995 and 1996 revealed the previously unknown tomb of a Sixth Dynasty high official named Inumin. The stratigraphy, objects and ceramics from the tomb's burial apartments are discussed, elucidating the nature of burial preparations for a senior member of the bureaucracy at this time. Analysis if the material shows that the Burial Chamber was robbed several times before being sealed by deposits associated with local weather events. This likely occurred some time before the end of the third millennium BC.
