Middle Kingdom sites

Many sites of the Middle Kingdom are represented on Digital Egypt for Universities. Significantly, there are almost no sites which cover the whole range of that period. At some places tombs and artefacts of the Early Middle Kingdom (mainly Eleventh Dynasty) were found (Badari/Qau/Sedment); while the Twelfth Dynasty is not well represented there. Other sites yielded mainly material of the late Twelfth Dynasty, leading seamlessly into the Thirteenth (Harageh, Hawara).
