Deir el-Bersha

Deir el-Bersha is renowned for the tombs of the Middle Kingdom nomarchs of the Hare nome. A geophysical survey carried out in 2002 revealed that the area had been heavily pitted by looters and early archaeologists.¹

Most recently, in May 2015, it was reported that the tomb of Djehutihotep at the site Deir el-Bersha was affected by looting and extensive destruction, in which walls with relief decoration were removed.
