Thebes, the so-called Intef cemetery

Petrie only published the contents of the tombs found, without any plans. Tomb groups can only be reconstructed from the tomb number which Petrie wrote on the objects and next to the objects in the publication. Some information on the tombs is given in the notebooks. Petrie did not publish a detailed plan of the cemetery.
