These reports follow on from the findings that Petrie published in The Royal Tombs of the First Dynasty (1900) and The Royal Tombs of the Earliest Dynasties (1901), both of which are reissued in this series. Volume 3 was produced by Petries younger colleagues, Edward Russell Ayrton (1882 1914), Charles Trick Currelly (1876 1956) and Arthur Weigall (1880 1934). The report includes chapters on the tombs of Senusret III and Ahmose I. More than sixty pages of plates illustrate the discoveries, which range from simple flint implements to elaborate stelae.

A chapter by Alan Gardiner (1879 1963) sheds light on the inscriptions.
