This page contains two separate timelines related to the history of Saqqara and the Dutch excavations. The first shows persons, dates and periods related to its ancient history. The second shows its recent archaeological history.

The scrollbar at the bottom of each timeline has functions for scrolling and moving the time focus. The dark grey area shows the currently selected time frame. The orange indicators at each end of the dark grey area show the earliest and last visible dates. You can shift the focus by moving the dark grey area to the left or the right. You can change the size by moving either orange indicator.

All dates are based on Ian Shaw & Paul Nicholson, 'British Museum Dictionary of Ancient Egypt', London, 1995.
