The team of the "Czech Institute of Egyptology of the Faculty of Arts of Charles University in Prague" announces in the third week of the current excavation season in Abusir the discovery of an extraordinary burial site.

The complex covers an area of ​​approx. 500 m². In addition to the actual grave, there were several other rooms that served the burial cult and the ritual purification of the priests. The cult chapel represents an architectural masterpiece of the 3rd millennium BC. It is paved with basalt blocks, actually an exclusive privilege of kings. The burial chamber was already looted in antiquity. In front of the limestone sarcophagus, the team found Miroslav Barta a formerly painted granite statue of the tomb Lord.

Her owner Kaires held high office at the royal court, the list of his titles is long and impressive, among others. : "Only Friend (of the King), Overseer of All Works (of the King), Keeper of the Secret of the Morning House, Administrator of the Royal Palace and House of Life, Inspector of the Priests in the Pyramidic Complexes of the Kings Sahure and Neferirkare, Priest of the Goddess Hathor (Lady of the Sycamore in Cusae), guardian of the two thrones ".
