Even with Old Kingdom trade shifting to the royal Memphite court, the state would have needed increasing and large amounts of agricultural produce and livestock to support the construction and maintenance of pyramids, temples, state projects, and royal cults. The royal court would have benefited from large numbers of agricultural settlements whose produce (and related landscape alterations) could feed workforces and craftsmen numbering in the tens of thousands (Lehner 1997: 224–5). Why the Old Kingdom, a period of tremendous prosperity, ‘‘collapsed’’ is debated by Egyptologists.

Maps from the Atlas Ge´ographique volume in the Description de l’Egypte remain of great use to landscape archaeologists today (Jomard 1820). Correcting the Napoleonic maps with satellite imagery reveals a high level of accuracy. Another early contribution to Egyptology was the Lepsius expedition, sent by the Prussian government in the 1840s. Maps from this expedition cover a wider area than the Description de l’Egypte maps (from Egypt to Ethiopia) (Lepsius 1849). Exploration and documentation by John Gardner Wilkinson and Giovanni Belzoni (to name a few) (Wilkinson 1841; Belzoni 1822) furthered both the field of Egyptology and landscape archaeology by allowing specific locations of archaeological sites to be mapped.
