Summary
"From the pyramids along the Nile and the royal burial ground in the Valley of the Kings to the tombs of queens such as Ramesses II's consort Nefertari and the large number of private tombs of nobles like Rekhmire and Ramose, The Tomb in Ancient Egypt is an unparalleled guide for aficionados and Egyptologists alike." "Written by two experts in the field, this new book traces burial practices in Egypt over three millennia, from the dawn of Egyptian history to the Roman domination. It also illuminates the work of key scholars who excavated and catalogued their finds for posterity, and it includes a comprehensive list of the principal cemeteries, with glossary and maps for ease of reference. Richly illustrated with photographs of the monuments and their art, plus numerous diagrams and reconstruction drawings, this is an essential and authoritative resource for all those passionate about ancient Egypt."--Jacket
