"Other documents"?

Merer's logbook, covering a period of 6-10 months (14), probably consisted of 5 rolls of papyrus: papyri A, B, C, D, and E (28). These had to be reassembled from the 400-800 fragments that were found at G1 and G2 (27).

Papyrus A, relatively well preserved, records several return trips between Turah and the Great Pyramid (although not specifically mentioning deliveries of stone), and to other work being carried out at Ro She Khufu. Papyrus B is the best preserved, and deals exclusively with transport of limestone blocks from Turah to the Great Pyramid. Both papyri were apparently by the same author (31).

The representations of the cartouche name of Khufu are more detailed in A (e.g., AI, 10b; 6a; 8b; 5a [Tab. 4]) than B (e.g., BII 6b; 8a; 28a; 3b). It is suggested that perhaps the writer just got more used to writing it as time went on.

(A number of accounts papyri were found at G7 and G17 [5]).

I'm merely reporting what I found in the description (as I did in several posts last year). If this is not detailed enough for your purposes, then I suggest that you either approach the archaeologists direct, or read Tallet 2017 yourself.
