…and which may be a fort. C71 is a detail view of this structure, looking west of north.
We had lunch in a tent beside a small house in which is a large limestone figure of Ramses II. On the way over we had noticed a small house off from the road, which looked very attractive.
After lunch we strolled round over the mounds, first to the temple of Ptah and then to this house. We found it to be unoccupied and we had Reis Mahmud make inquires as to the owner and as to the rental. We then rode back to Giza through the fields. At Giza the men had finished clearing the shafts of 3035. They are still clearing sand from the passage between 3035 and the mastaba to the west. West of 3034 is a small offering room apparently belonging to the large mud brick mastaba west of 3035; this was filled with sand and mud debris. The passages west of 3033 are being cleared of sand. The railroad is being moved over to the east edge of the work and is now running out nearly due north, from near the end of 2080 [= G 1227].
