Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ...probably of wood. The main chamber was entered by a stairway built of bricks on gebel but mostly destroyed before found by us. The tomb was completely plundered. Even the mud floor was broken into. In the dirt one complete pottery cone was found and several broken ones such as were found near the 12 th dyn. tomb on the northern edge and in many other 12th dynasty tombs at Sheikh Farag and in cemeteries 3500 and 100. 3071. This tomb is quite irregular in construction owing to the fact that it is built partly in the stairway of 3031 and appears to be subsidiary to that tomb. The axis is 430 east of south (while that of 3031 is 680 and 3062 is 580 east of south). See PI. 67b-c and fig. 141. The walls of 3071 are bonded with the stairway of 3031. The walls are brick thick but surmounted by one course of headers (i. e. 1 brick thick). The incline of the stair leading to 3031 was filled with rubbish and plastered level with the floor of the north end of 3071 (see fig. 142). The doorway was blocked with brickwork like that of 3031. It was roofed with branches of wood which were found in position, see PI. 67d. It is probable judging from the logs over the door and the straightness of the walls that the roof of the chamber was also of wood. The skeleton was contracted on the left side head south, without trace of cloth, mat or wood, see PI. 67c. In front of the burial were the following objects (fig. 137): 1. 2. 3, Jars of rough red ware, type vc. 4. Alabaster dish, shallow, broken, PI. 72f. 5. Alabaster cylindrical jar. 6. Alabaster cylindrical jar, broken, upper part in PI. 72f. 7. Limestone bowl, broken, PI. 72f. 8. Flat pan, red polished brown ware, type xxv1. 9. Pot of smooth red painted red ware, type xx1a. Diam. 25: h. n cm. 137. N. more
