This thesis examines mortuary practices and social relationships at the northern Egyptian cemetery of Tarkhan. 968 graves were analysed dating from the pre-state period. This research has revealed that burying the dead was influenced by many factors including social relations, kinship, memory and ideology. It is clear that community-based mortuary practices were more complex than previous models of pre-state Egyptian society have suggested. This study contributes new knowledge to the cemetery of Tarkhan and to the processes involved in burial practices.
