In recent years excavations have been going on inside the subterranean tomb of Senwosret III at South Abydos, as well as a program of expanded investigation of the wider landscape of the mortuary complex and settlement of the mortuary complex of Wah-Sut-Khakaure. The lecture will look at the current work on the subterranean tomb located beneath the sacred peak of the Mountain-of-Anubis, including the ARCE-funded restoration and site protection project. We will turn to look at other activities including work on subsidiary mastabas, the Middle Kingdom town site excavations, as well as the exciting results from excavations of the private cemeteries.
