reconstructed houseAERA’s discovery of two ancient homes near the Giza pyramids in Egypt was reported this week in LiveScience.

The houses were located near an ancient port that saw goods and materials coming in from all over Egypt and the eastern Mediterranean. The structures may have housed officials responsible for overseeing the production of food for a paramilitary force living in a nearby series of galleries, during the time the Pyramid of Menkaure was being constructed at Giza.

For more information, including a photogallery of images, see the full article on LiveScience.

For our reports of previous seasons’ work at these structures, see AERAgram volumes 16 & 17.
