The Big Tomb J
Dynasty 0   (~ 3.150 BC)

Tomb J (7,5x10 meters) was found in the oldest part (Cemetery U) of the royal cemery at Abydos in the early 1990s. Notice the narrow slits from the small rooms into the grave chamber (upper right), possibly symolic doors for the spirit of the owner to pass through. The two rooms at the left long side are later(?) extensions of the original design.
