Latest exploration in North Saqqara necropolis


The lecture will provide historical background for the history of the Old Kingdom, a time renowned for its architectural and artistic achievements. This era, which is a cornerstone in
the rich tapestry of Egyptian history, will be illuminated through the recent findings by the Czech Institute of Egyptology at the North Saqqara necropolis. The discoveries there have
shed new light on the period, particularly through the excavation of the famous tombs of Ptahshepses, Kaiemheset, and Nymaatra. Attendees of the talk can expect a comprehensive
historical context, enriched by the latest archaeological evidence from one of Egypt’s most important sites.
