“Recent excavations at South Abydos have revealed a royal cemetery dating to 1850-1600 BC. Initiated by Senwosret III in the 12th Dynasty, the necropolis of 'Anubis Mountain' continued to be used by subsequent kings of the 13th Dynasty and Second Intermediate Period. The lecture will look at work on the 12 known tombs. These include the tombs of Senwosret III, Seneb-Kay and those attributed to the brother-kings Neferhotep I, Sobekhotep IV and Sahathor. Many questions remain and the lecture will delve into the mysteries about this necropolis and the pharaohs buried there.”
