This website is maintained by the Friends of Saqqara Foundation, a non-profit foundation aimed at providing financial support for Dutch archaeological research at Saqqara, Egypt. For the last fifteen years the foundation has particularly supported the joint excavation team of the National Museum of Antiquities at Leiden, the Museo Egizio at Turin and Leiden University. For several decades, this team has been advancing the research, documentation, and preservation of the monuments in the area to the south of the Step Pyramid of Djoser, where a cemetery of important New Kingdom officials is located.
