El Lahun is the name of a village located in the province of El Fayoum, where the complex of the pyramid of Senusret II (Sesostris II) and the workers' village who erected the buildings for the middle kingdom' king's funerary cult, about half a mile from the pyramid, on the edge of the cultivation area. The structure of the pyramid is now no more than ruins that are covered with sand at their base. Some buildings were demolished when a railroad was built in the region.
The area was excavated by Flinders Petrie in 1888-90 and later in 1914, many household objects and instruments were found, and this is considered a sign of a good standard of living at the time. The so-called Kahun papyri were also found in the village, about a thousand fragments, dealing with legal, mathematical and medical matters.
Then we will be transferred to another site known as El Lisht to see the Pyramid of Amenemhat I, a 12th dynasty king, the first pyramid of the Middle Kingdom to be built, since the predecessors of Amenemhat I, of the First Intermediate Period and of the 11th dynasty, did not build pyramids.
We will also be visiting the Pyramid of Senusret I, around the pyramid stretched a broad walled perimeter complex, consisting of a funerary temple, a rectangular chapel with a central courtyard, and nine minor pyramids for Senusret's wives and daughters. From the temple, a limestone causeway with statues carved every ten cubits ran to a public temple, the Valley Temple, outside the inner perimeter. Little of all this is visible today, however, because later Roman buildings were built over the ancient complex.
You will then be transferred back to the hotel after your trips from Cairo are done.
