    EGYPT: March -2013.
    Shepseskaf Mastaba. Interior. 

    The Shepseskaf Mastaba is located in South Saqqara. According the official version it is the tomb of the last pharaoh of IV dynasty, who decided to distinguish themselves by building a Mastaba itself instead of the pyramid.

    Mastaba is a rectangular structure approximately 100x75 meters, 18 meters high. It is composed of 10 rows of huge limestone blocks, which are currently subjected to terrible erosion. The information about the external features of Shepseskaf Mastaba can be found in the "Expedition Report December 2012."

    The one of purposes of our expedition (March, 2013) was to study the peculiarities of the internal structure of the Shepseskaf Mastaba.
