Excavations of the mastaba fields surrounding the pyramids at Giza (photo right) were undertaken by George Reisner in the 1930s.

This project analysed the skeletal remains from Reisner's excavations that are currently housed at the Peabody Museum at Harvard University and the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum at the University of California, Berkeley.

Skeletal remains housed in Cairo are being studied by colleague Dr. Sary el-Din at the National Research Centre.

The results of the analyses have appeared in:
