Fig.1: Plan of the Temple of Senusret I at Lisht (British School of Archaeology 1913).The Temple of Senusret I was built in the early part of the 12th Dynasty just before 1926 BC, about 1 km south of the pyramid of Senusret's father, Amenemhet I. The temple, excavated in 1913 by the British School of Archaeology, was approached from the east by a causeway, entrance hall, and colonnaded court. Senusret's actual burial, located to the west under the main temple, has not been excavated due to high ground water (Clayton 2006).
