Some authors suggest occupation dates that should begin thousands of years earlier.

The original settlement on the Nekhen site dates from the culture known as Naqada I of 4400 BC or the late Badarian culture that may date from 5000 BC. At its height from about 3400 BC Nekhen had at least 5,000 and possibly as many as 10,000 inhabitants. The ruins of the city originally were excavated toward the end of the nineteenth century by the English archaeologists James E. Quibell and F. W. Green. Quibell and Green discovered the Main Deposit, a foundation deposit beneath the temple, in 1894. Quibell was originally trained under W.M.F. Petrie, the inventor of modern.
