Activities were continued in the part of the site adjoining the west section of the enclosure wall of the Netjerykhet pyramid. The aim was to finish exploration and documentation of structures, which were to be the subject of forthcoming publications Saqqara IV: The funerary complex of Ny-ankh-Nefertem (2010) and Saqqara V: Old Kingdom structures between the enclosure wall of Netjerykhet’s pyramid and the west section of the “Dry Moat” (forthcoming).
