Secrets of the tomb of Neferinpu

Czech Institute of Egyptology

The Czech Institute website has been updated with a summary, including photographs, of the recently publicized discovery of an Old Kingdom tomb at Abusir.

The story of the exploration of the mysterious tomb of priest Neferinpu, who lived in ancient Egypt in the 24th century BC has been unfolding already for two years and its end is still nowhere within our sight. The tomb was discovered in the spring of 2006, and in the same season, the chapel which housed the cult of this priest and other members of his family was also brought to light.

Details about other discoveries at the site, made in previous seasons, are also available on the website.
