Since 2012, the Hatnub Epigraphic Survey has set out to fully photographically document surviving inscriptions at the Hatnub alabaster quarries, in the desert of Middle Egypt. Since the site’s discovery in 1891, these texts have featured regularly in discussions of Old and Middle Kingdom history, but no detailed survey of them had been made since the one by Georg Möller in 1907, the results of which were published by Rudolf Anthes in 1928. The earliest dated inscriptions at the site are from the reign of Khufu, and there are also numerous texts datable to the Sixth Dynasty and the later First Intermediate Period or early Middle Kingdom, most notably the graffiti mentioning the nomarchs of the Hare nome.
