The project has been carrying out excavation on the summit of a limestone outcrop at North Saqqara since December 1991. The excavations have uncovered a large limestone monument of Khaemwaset, the forthe son of Ramesses II of Dynasty 19. The purposes of the excavation of this season was two-fold : to complete excavation of the stone monument, and to identify structures around the monument.
A southern part of an outer wall and the south-west corner of the monument were uncovered, and the overall structure of this monument was revealed during the season. Its general dimensions are 25m (north-south) by 30m (east-west). A foundation deposit discovered at the north-west corner of the monument include several faience scarabs inscribed with the name and titles of Khaemwaset, indicating that the monument was founded by the prince himself.
A limestone alignment and a limestone pavement were excavated to the east and to the north of the monument respectively. They seem to date to a period later than the monument itself, though their precise date has not yet been determined. From the west slope of the site, a number of objects including fragments of blue painted pottery were collected. They indicate that certain structures of the middle Dynasty 18 existed at the site, as was supposed from bricks which were recovered in the last season, and stamped with cartouches of Amenophis II and Tuthmosis (IV? ).
An analysis of finds indicates that the site was occupied from Dynasty 18 to the Byzantine period, for almost two thousands years.
