Neferu was an overseer of the transportation and trade
in Nubia during the reign of Senwosret
I. His particular area was the region that surrounded
the Buhen fortress which was south of the First Cataract
of the Nile. This was an important area for protecting
the growing trade in the Middle Kingdom. There is a
mortuary stela that gives information about this era and
it can be found in the British Museum.
