Gizeh and Rifeh

This 1907 publication by Flinders Petrie is highlighted with the discovery of an intact Middle Kingdom tomb of two brothers named Nekht Ankh and Khnum Nekht at a site called Rifeh.

Their entire funerary ensemble including the mummies (skeletons) of the brothers is in the Manchester Museum.

The publication is a short read with good black and white excavation photos.
