The objective of the campaign was to complete the exploration, clearing and documentation of archaeological structures uncovered on the site adjoining the west side of the enclosure wall of the Netjerykhet pyramid in preparation for the publication of the next two volumes in the Saqqara series. Shaft 113 proved to be of particular importance, the burial chamber containing an unfinished limestone sarcophagus and lid as left by the excavators of the ancient tomb. The scope of conservation work carried out on site and in site storage is presented in the appendix (including a unique body cover).
