Old Kingdom Official Found

A skeleton of an official from the Vth Dynasty court of King Nefereer-Ka-Re has been located within his limestone sarcophagus at Abusir. The official named Nefer was discovered inside his roughly carved burial chamber by the Czek archaeological mission to Abusir headed by Mirislav Barta.

A number of burial shafts have also been found and no doubt will provide interesting material in the future for the excavation team.
