Baqet III was the 'great overlord' of the Oryx province, located in the most fertile region of Egypt. The well-preserved wall scenes in his chapel record activities undertaken in the desert, on land and river, in workshops as well as those of wars and entertainments. Dated to the end of the Eleventh Dynasty, the tomb documents one of the critical times in Egyptian history. The architectural features and the scenes and inscriptions are published in colour photographs and detailed line drawings, accompanied by explanatory text.

The book contains the excavation and recording of Tomb A4 and its decorated burial chamber belonging to Niankhpepy the Black, whose son Pepyankh the Black built two communicating tombs A1 and A2 for his father and himself, then linking the chapel of Tomb A1 to the burial chamber of Tomb A4 via a sloping passage. This is an exceptional example of filial affection in ancient Egypt. The scenes and inscriptions as well as the architecture of Tomb A1 have been re-recorded and are published in this volume. Minor tombs with finds were discovered in the rock-cliff face in the area between Tombs A1 and A4, and have been dated to the late Old Kingdom/early First Intermediate Period.

The tomb of Pepyankh the Black (D2) at Meir was published by Blackman in his series The Rock Tombs of Meir (vol. 5, London, 1953). The Australian Centre for Egyptology (ACE) rerecorded all the scenes and inscriptions in the chapel after these had been conserved by the Supreme Council of Antiquities, with many additional details surfacing. The ACE has also undertaken conservation work in the burial chamber which yielded interesting information on the decoration of burial chambers in the Old Kingdom. The tomb is one of the most completely decorated and preserved provincial tombs of the Old Kingdom with scenes covering various themes from the life of the tomb owner as well as the most complete scenes of the funerary procession. All the scenes and inscriptions are published in detailed, coloured photographs as well as line drawings. They are accompanied by a textual description of the scenes, translation of the hieroglyphic texts and a comparative analysis with other contemporary tombs.

As vizier and husband of King Teti's eldest daughter, Mereruka enjoyed a very special status and built an unusually rich mastaba. This volume deals with the architecture and art of the exterior of his mastaba and with those of rooms A1-A12 of his magnificent chapel. The variety of themes depicted in this section of the chapel include, fishing and fowling, life in the marshlands, gardening, desert hunt, metal workers and other professions, rendering accounts, poultry house, preparation of food and drink and bringing offerings, entertainment with the harp, etc. The tomb is an essential source of information for most research in the Old Kingdom. In addition to the new and complete record in line drawings and colour photographs, the present book includes studies of the architectural features and the colour conventions in the tomb as well as detailed tabulation of titles, individuals and themes represented. Includes 50 folded line drawings.

The mud brick mastaba of Remni was recently discovered in the North West corner of the Teti Cemetery. All four walls of its one room chapel are covered with scenes of daily life, painted on mud plaster and thus preserving for us a good example of this rarely preserved type of decoration. The artist succeeded in including a large variety of topics at a miniature scale in a limited space. The owner, Remni, held titles connected with the personal service of the king and represents two wives in the decoration of his chapel, both apparently important and possibly with royal connection.

Following the publication of the Northern Cliff of Deir el-Gebrawi, the Australian Centre for Egyptology has undertaken a season of re-recording the tomb of Ibi and other surrounding smaller tombs on the Southern Cliff. Originally recorded by Davies in 1900 and published in 1902, the tomb of Ibi represents an important document on the administration and the provincial life in the period Merenre to early Pepy II. Ibi was an important governor of two provinces, Nos. 8 and 12 of Upper Egypt and was probably linked to the royal in-laws at Abydos. The new publication includes new line drawings showing the present condition of the scenes and inscriptions, accompanied by line drawings of the same scenes retraced from Davies' publication. As the decoration of these tombs was done in painting, all the photographs are published in colour and showing the present condition of the walls after a major conservation program by the ACE in conjunction with the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities.

Located on the northern limits of the Teti Cemetery, the Tomb of Inumin is dated to the earlier part of the reign of Pepy I. The chapel is formed of five rooms, three of which are beautifully decorated with scenes of daily life clearly influenced by the neighbouring rich tomb of Mereruka, but at the same time showing individuality in the choice of details. Like most of the viziers of this period, Inumin also had a fully decorated burial chamber. The tomb owner was an overseer of Upper Egypt under Teti and became a vizier late in his career under Pepy I.

This original study examines the claims for sensational intrigues in the 6th century Egyptian palace, culminating in the possible assassination of King Teti by his own bodyguards.
New evidence from the author's recent excavations is set against the written claims of the ancient historian Manetho. This offers the reader a unique opportunity to compare archaeological and historical evidence, and sheds new light on the political conspiracies and quarrels of the age.
With over 80 illustrations, and clear presentation of the dynastic tomb excavations, the book also gives a rare and accessible insight into Old Kingdom society and administration under the kings Unis, Teti and Pepy I. It will be valuable to all students of Egyptian history.

El-Hagarsa lies on the west bank of the Nile near the border of Nomes 8 and 9, though it is disputed as to which of them it belonged. Some of the tombs were recorded and published by Petrie in 1908, but the cemetery was re-examined by the Australian Centre for Egyptology in an attempt to further document the archaeological remains of the ninth province of Upper Egypt, and this book reports on their findings. The investigation revealed some inconsistencies in the earlier record, some important unrecorded decorated tombs, as well as the discovery of two undecorated tombs with undisturbed burial chambers.

Deir el-Gebrawi was one of the most important provinces in the Old Kingdom, with governors buried there holding high administrative positions, including that of vizier. The cemetery occupies two separate cliffs, the nothern one of which received very limited attention from Norman de Garis Davies, who first published it in 1902. The new record includes all the surviving information on the architecture, art and inscriptions in the tombs of the northern cliff, as well as reproductions of certain sections from Davies' publication, where these have deteriorated or been vandalized since 1902. The volume contains records on the tombs of Henqu I and II and Hemre/Isi I and II, and others, all documented in colour plates and line drawing.

The project of surveying, excavating, recording and preserving the site of El-Hawawish, the cemetery of Akhmim, capital of the ninth province of Upper Egypt, was completed in 1992. This book complements the published series on the rock tombs, and attempts to reconsider the chronology of the officials of UE. 9 and other Upper Egyptian provinces, the dates for many of which differ from those currrently accepted. Whilst concentrating on chronology as well as on civil and religious administration, the book also draws on an analysis of various other aspects such as art, architecture, colour conventions, palaeography, stelae, coffins and pottery.
