the cemetery of the Third Intermediate and Late Period

Brunton in Petrie/Brunton/Murray 1923: 36: "The XXIInd Dynasty is here used as a general term for the XXIInd-XXIVth dynasties, as most of the objects found belong to the Bubastites. (...) Very few of the quantities of burials discovered were undisturbed, and almost all occupied the tombs of an earlier date. Only one or two small original graves were found."
