The following initiatives were discussed and agreed as being potentially useful:
1. Exchange of offprints:
A list of the addresses of members of the group will be prepared and
circulated (but not made available on the Internet). In order to speed up
exchange of information, members are encouraged to send offprints of
their new publications to the other Egyptologists on the list.
2. Prosopography of New-Kingdom Saqqara:
It was agreed that a database (computerized, if possible), containing
prosopographical information on New-Kingdom Saqqara (or, possibly, a
larger area of the Memphite necropolis) would in the the current state
of research be extremely useful and might save a great
deal of duplication of effort. The suggestion will be investigated further.

3. Plans of New-Kingdom Saqqara:
A need for plans which would systematically record the location of
New-Kingdom structures was stressed. Archaeologists working at Saqqara
will be approached and the matter discussed.
4. Electronic successor to Memphis Newsletter:
It was agreed that it would be useful to be informed about current projects,
the latest results of field work and other research, and have a means of
publishing brief contributions quickly. The easiest way of
achieving this will be by establishing our presence on the Internet and
the project would be a continuation, by other means, of the Memphis
Newsletter edited by Jacobus van Dijk.

5. Next meeting of the group:
The possibility of holding a meeting of the New-Kingdom Saqqara
group in Cairo in the Spring (April-May) of 2001 will be investigated.

Other topics briefly discussed were an archive of material for the study of New-Kingdom Saqqara and the question of site museums.
