…killed and wounded, + 40 prisoners; the English losses were 3 wounded.
Friday, February 5, 1915
The roof of the chamber found yesterday has been cleared; it is the offering room of mastaba 2090 [= G 3090]. In the sand outside the entrance, were a number of fragments of large pottery jars and a rough limestone offering slab. In the mastaba are four shafts, A-D, all filled with a hard packed rubble debris. In shaft B, at a depth of about 90 cm, the burial is roofed over with two slabs, one simply a rough limestone block, but the other a niche block. Inadvertently I stepped down on to the rough block, which gave way so that I went through on to the skeleton below. The sides of the burial chamber were covered with rough plaster. West of this mastaba is 2091 [= G 3091], which seems to be built of rough rubble. The top of this is being cleared. North of both these mastabas is a mastaba 2092 [= G 3092] and its 2 offering rooms. The mastaba itself is in line with 2091 [= G 3091] and contains 3 shafts, A-C, which are being cleared of sand and rubble debris.
