The aim of these reports is to give a detailed account of the monuments as they were discovered. A special volume will be devoted to the historical and archaeological results of our discoveries. Work began this season on December 6, 1930, on the spot lying to the west of the tomb of Re’-wer. We were better equipped for work this season, both in materials and labour, thanks to the larger credit granted to us by the University. My assistants were more experienced, and were inured to the hardships of the work, and thus the results of the season were very satisfactory. More than 19 inscribed tombs were brought to light, not a single one of which was known before, if we except a part of the tomb of Ni-maat-Ref . This tomb had been entered by Ahmad Pasha Kamal, but only part of its inscriptions had been copied by him. Some of the inscriptions and scenes of these tombs are unique in the history of art and archaeology, as for instance those in the tomb of Wep-em-nefert. The staff included Abdelsalam Effendi, who collaborated in bringing this volume to light ; Ibrahim Effendi Khalil, of the Ministry of Public Works, and who was our official artist ; Morris Effendi Mangabadi and Fawzi Effendi Ibrahim the Survey Engineer, who made the plans and sections. The photographic records were made by Ismail Shehab and Dakktor Ahmad Hassan, one of our trained Kuftis. Our workmen were under the able control of Reis Saddik, a very capable man and well trained in the art of excavation. Prof. P. Newberry visited the field very often, and Prof. Junker was ever ready with helpful advice. Herr Von Larisch was kind enough to help us in tracing the very difficult scene of offerings in the tomb of Ka-em-nefert. I have also to thank very heartily the Director of the Egyptian Government Press for the trouble he and his staff have taken to prepare and print the hieroglyphic inscriptions in this book. This is the first time that such an undertaking has been carried out by a purely Egyptian Press. A special thanks is due to Ahmad Kamal Effendi Shukry, one of my graduates, who helped in the execution of the work. August 1936 SELIM HASSAN
