Lisht, twenty miles south of Cairo, has been the site of excavations since its discovery in 1906, and since that time scholars at the Metropolitan Museum have published several volumes about this Middle Kingdom site. This new book in the series focuses on the architecture of the pyramid complex of King Amenemhat I, which was built on a foundation using Old Kingdom blocks. The publication brings together new information obtained from numerous expeditions and many years of research and analysis, and includes photographs from the original finding in the early 20th century as well as new, unpublished drawings of wall reliefs and inscriptions.

Documenting an area of excavation in Egypt that has suffered recent damage and continues to be threatened, this book provides indispensable insight to students and scholars of Egyptian archaeology and architecture.
