This chapter focuses on South Abusir, the southern section of the Czech archaeological concession in the Memphite necropolis. It first describes the Valley of Abusir, which is supposed to have been the easiest access way to the Saqqara cemetery, and how the North Saqqara escarpment and the Lake of Abusir not only dominated but also helped shape the archaeological landscape of South Abusir. It then looks at the Lake of Abusir and its surroundings in the Early Dynastic Period and Old Kingdom, along with the mastabas of Fifth Dynasty officials such as Kaaper and Neferinpu. It also discusses tombs found in South Abusir, including the tomb of Fetekti, the tomb of Meryheryshefpepy, and the tomb complex of Qar.
