BYU Egypt Project, Fag el-Gamus necropolis, Seila Pyramid, mummies, burial shafts, dietary history, stable isotopy, 14C analysis
The BYU Egypt Project at Fag el-Gamus necropolis and adjacent Seila Pyramid has studied over 700 mummies excavated over the past 30 years. The necropolis includes an open area with densely located vertical burial shafts and a hill with horizontal burial shafts. The chronological and dietary history of the mummies was assessed using stable isotopy and 14C analysis of accessible biological samples.
