Ritual enclosures at Abydos
Dynasty 2   (~ 2.600 BC)

 
These brick built monuments were probably for ritual purposes and some had remnants of building inside. They had side burials outside just like the kings' tombs. In the 1990s twelve pits with boats were found. Khasekemwy's area (the largest) had remnants of a mound and a square building inside. Another consrtuction (maybe from king Qa), is situated 150 m to the north (right).
