Amara West 2015: a pyramid edge and its chapel emerges

Michaela Binder, bioarchaeologist

A pyramid and chapel emerges

A successful first day of excavation in G321! On the hottest day of the season so far, Sofie exposes the well-preserved southern wall of a mud-brick funerary chapel. Visible to her right, the first sections of the pyramid base provide a hint of the relative grandeur of this funerary monument – many times larger than all other pyramids known at Amara West.
