Notes to self:
Early Dynastic Cemeteries with monumental palace facade mastabas:
Saqqara
Helwan
Tarkhan
Giza (southern cemetery)
Abu Roash (Early Dynastic tomb superstructures found destroyed. Have yet to verify if any evidence of palace facade)
El-Reqaqna
Beit Khallaf (? Large mastabas, no, which is interesting, not sure about others.)
Naga ed-Deir

The 1st Dynasty supposedly lasted less than 200yrs yet here we find a vast, highly developed network of cemeteries right from the get go, most occurring within the first 130yrs or less depending on whose dating. In conjunction with the sudden arrival of monumental palace facade architecture, among other things, I am even more convinced this goes far beyond just the "unifying" of Egypt.
