Photograph C48 is a general view of the work in the cemetery so far as completed; in the lower right hand corner is the vaulted offering room of 3024.

Sunday, February 21, 1915

The following is the progress in clearing shafts:
3004, B hard sand and dark limestone debris
3014, A “ “
3023, A to D “ “ “ “
3024, A-B “ “ “ “ “
3022, A to C “
3032, A “ “ “ “

The space between 3031 and 3032 is filled with sand. Mastaba 3033 is built entirely of mud bricks; the offering chamber being in the interior of the main structure. At the southern end this has an alcove projecting to the East; the interior is divided by later cross walls into three separate chambers, X, Y and Z. These were filled with sand, mud and limestone debris. In X at the south end were many small fragments of an inscribed limestone stele. In Y was a niche with a limestone log lintel above; and in Z was a similar niche lintel. These bear the name of the Funerary Priest, Sabef.
