In 1910, G. Lefèbvre excavated on the site (cf. Parlasca 1966, p.34; Grimm 1974, p.35) and Petrie resumed his work in the Labyrinth and in the Roman cemetery, again finding lots of mummy portraits.

Among other parts of the site the area east of the pyramid was further excavated in more recent times by the Inspectorate of Faiyum Antiquities worked in the necropolis north and east of the pyramid and by the Egyptian archaeologists by

Fathi Melek and Hishmat Adib (1972),

Motawi Balboush (1974) and el-Khouli (1983).

(see the reports in Leclant 1973, p.404; Leclant 1975, p.208-209, and Leclant 1984, p.370)

The entrance to the pyramid was cleared by A. Al-Bazidy in 1995.


The last survey before the Mataha-expedition of the site was undertaken in 2000 by a Belgian mission.

From 5 to 23 March 2000 the Catholic University of Leuven mapped the architectural remains visible on the surface.

The complementary study of the surface pottery resulted in a chronological framework of the different areas of the site and in a representative catalogue of the Hawara ceramics covering the period between the Middle Kingdom (ca. 2000 BCE) and the 10th century CE.

Inge Uytterhoeven (field director Hawara 2000 survey) of the Leuven University expects to publish the survey report in fall 2008.
