Abstract

Despite the intense archaeological research, Memphis, the first capital of united Egypt, still remains largely unknown. One of the most crucial and fascinating issues is the question of its original localisation. The place thought to have the greatest potential to hide the remains of the oldest Memphis is Kom el-Fakhry, situated in the southern part of Mit Rahina, west of the Ptah Temple complex. The most recent works carried out in 2011 by the joint Egyptian-American mission shed a bit more light on the question of the Old Kingdom Memphis.
