The chronology of the cemetery of Deir el-Gebrawi, located within the 12th Upper Egyptian province, has been debated for over a century. Determining a date for the individuals buried there has wide implications for our understanding of tomb art and architecture, as well as the provincial administration of Upper Egypt. Previous studies have focused on various artistic and architectural criteria to establish a chronology of the tomb owners and the site itself. This study adopts a different approach. Instead, it seeks to determine the relationships of the tomb owners and, at its core, is a genealogy of these people. This has assisted in understanding the individuals, their careers and titles, as well as the art and architecture of their tombs. Through a close study of the tomb owners and their relationships, it has been possible to draw numerous conclusions about their lives, the art and architecture of this province, re-assess its chronology, and place Deir el-Gebrawi within the wider context of Sixth Dynasty Egypt. This study seeks to determine the relationships of the tomb owners at Deir el-Grabawi, and, at its core, is a genealogy of these people. This has assisted in understanding the individuals, their careers and titles, as well as the art and architecture of their tombs. Through a close study of the tomb owners and their relationships, it has been possible to draw numerous conclusions about their lives, the art and architecture of this province, reassess its chronology, and place Deir el-Grabawi within the wider context of Sixth Dynasty Egypt.
