The Czech Institute of Egyptology (prior to 1993, the Czechoslovak Institute of Egyptology) celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. The beginnings of its activities in the field are closely tied to the UNESCO campaigns organised in the early 1960s in order to save monuments of ancient Nubia in connection with the construction of the Aswan High Dam. The archaeological works on the pyramid field of Abusir, which took place only a few years later, were originally focused on the Fifth Dynasty mastaba tomb of Vizier Ptahshepses. The concession at Abusir as well as the tomb itself had a significant impact on the evolution of the Old Kingdom studies centred in Prague. It is hoped that the new reports and studies presented in this issue of the Prague Egyptological Studies will further the knowledge of Third Millennium BC Egypt. The issue covers a broad range of topics dealing with exploration not only at the Memphite necropolis but also in the provinces, describing new methods and approaches to the research. As most studies provide a more general framework for the presented data, thus gaining on universal relevance and significance, they may be of interest not only to Egyptologists but also to laypeople and specialists from other fields of archaeological or historical studies.
