Full description for Abusir
At the centre of the world-famous pyramid field of the Memphite necropolis there lies a group of pyramids, temples and tombs named after the nearby village of Abusir. Long overshadowed by the more familiar pyramids at Giza and Saqqara, this area has nonetheless been the site, for 40 years, of an extensive operation to discover its past. This book documents the uncovering by a dedicated team of Czech archaeologists of a hitherto neglected wealth of ancient remains dating from the Old Kingdom to the Late Period. This is Abusir, realm of Osiris, God of the dead, and its story is one of both modern archaeology and the long-buried mystery that it seeks to uncover.
