Abstract: Surveys in 2012 and 2013 by the University of Leuven Dayr al-Barshā Project, under the direction of HARCO WILLEMS, led to the discovery of early Old Kingdom rock circle tombs on the Nile facing escarpment in Speos Artemidos region. In addition an Old Kingdom rock-cut mastaba was likewise found. The first excavations in the area were, however, conducted already over a hundred years ago by JOHN GARSTANG. The article will discuss GARSTANG’s finds and present the new survey results in order to examine the position of the Speos Artemidos region in the Old Kingdom.
