Hi Thanos, I believe the drawing you refer to in front of Judah is the iron grill door Maspero had fitted on top of Petrie's granite block (part of the antechamber portcullis block) to prevent access to the subterranean chamber. This image by the Edgars can be found in Great Pyramid Passages vol 1,page 197, 1923 second edition, with further images on pages 198 & 199.

Excellent thread this;the image of the Uruk temple is interesting, especially the irregular base with the niche decoration. In my Khentkawes guide, I mention Colin Readers suggestion of earlier dynastic structures at Giza and on the palace facade decoration found on the south face of Khentkawes tomb, l suggested that it may have been part of an irregular boundary of an earlier structure that w

Thanks for bringing this subject up; it appears an area that could do with more research. As mentioned in your op, Gillings appears not to mention the subject, even Corinna Rossi's book 'Architecture and mathematics in ancient Egypt' is pretty scant. Some more info can be found here;

Hi Steve, I am glad you found it interesting. I did comment in my paper about the unfinished nature of the chambers, M&R commented that only a portion of the wall of the burial chamber showed the start of dressing. I suggested a king in poor health might mean they prioritise the build of the structure first and finishing touches last, this way at least they had a structure for the king.

Hi, I have Petries notebooks on cd rom, got it many years ago from the Petrie museum, might be worth contacting them to see if they still offer them for sale. Be prepared for page after page of doctors handwriting though.

Good question, Early Egyptian chronology is fraught with difficulty and views differ in Egyptology by some centuries when it comes to the 4th dynasty, with the consensus these days being around 2700BC; but this can only be a best guess. I myself have no problem with 2900BC. The following artcicle by Puchkov which tries to marry astronomical observations and the carbon dating of 4th dynasty str
