The new excavation around the pyramid complex of Sahura at Abusir unearthed several limestone blocks with first class relief decoration in the area to the north side of the upper part of the causeway. The new blocks were discovered directly under the excavation debris of the excavation of the pyramid temple by Ludwig Borchardt (Borchardt 1910). This discovery shows that Borchardt never fully excavated the causeway. A new settlement dated back to the first millennium was found as well as other interesting material.

Im Anschluss an die Vorlesung findet ein Umtrunk in den Räumen der Ägyptologie statt, zu dem wir Sie gerne einladen möchten.
