Thanks. I don't see any evidence that a "Mortuary Temple" was constructed before the pyramid or the causeway.

I also don't see any evidence supporting the notion that the construction of the Boat Pits occurred after the causeway thereby partly destroying it. Rather, the Pits may have been excavated during or before the construction of the causeway; in any case, the central Pit seems to respect thte causeway and not vice versa, but maybe not. How do we know when the Pits were constructed relative to the construction of the pyramid, MT, or death of the king?
