1st and 2nd dynasty mastabas

This site is located just a few hundred meters north of the pyramid of Teti. The easiest way to get there is to park a the guard station. There are dozens of mud-brick mastabas here. This is an extremely important site since this is a possibility that the Kings of the 1st and 2nd dynasty may be entombed. Egyptologist have been debating this for decades. Arguing between royal mastaba or high official mastabas. Some of the mastabas have a palace facade and quite large.
