The Saqqara necropolis had been in use – almost continuously – for over three thousand years. First established for royalty and the nobility, the necropolis soon became a resting place for all members of society regardless of their social standing. This presentation aimed to introduce the audience to the cemetery site located immediately to the west of the Step Pyramid complex, where the archaeological team from the University of Warsaw investigates burials dating to the Old Kingdom and Ptolemaic Period.
