From the publisher\'s website:This is first part of publications dealing with the unique complex of the viyier Qar and his sons discovered in Abusir South between 1995-2002. Individual tombs date to the Sixth Dynasty (23rd century BC). The principal tomb belonging to vizier Qar comprised two decorated chapels in the superstructure and a burial chamber decorated as well. The tombs in the immediate vicinity belonged to his sons whose burial chambers still contained a wealth of unique items belonging to the original burial equipment. The present publication also provides a general environmental framework for the period under discussion.

From the book cover: This book examines the funerary monuments of the kings of Egypt, from the decline of the royal pyramids at the end of the Middle Kingdom down to the Classical accounts describing the tomb of the last Macedonian ruler, Cleopatra VII. The chronological narrative looks at the different elements of late Egyptian tombs; both the subterranean burial places, often superbly decorated, and the massive temples where spirits could receive offerings and commune with the dead. The decoration of these little-known monuments is described, together with a summary of their most important contents. From the construction of these ornate tombs, to the later plundering of royal sepulchres, this is the complete guide to death and burial in New Kingdom Egypt.

Categories :  Monuments, Temples & Tombs  
Du site de l'éditeur : Dans la partie sud-ouest de la ville d’Alexandrie se situe le quartier antique de Rhakotis, là ou aujourd’hui la colonne dite « de Pompée » indique les maigres vestiges du Serapeum, sanctuaire principal de la métropole égyptienne durant les époques ptolémaïque et romaine. Grâce à l’analyse des documents variés issus des fouilles anciennes et à un nouveau relevé des vestiges exécuté par l’auteur, l’évolution historique du sanctuaire a pu être précisée et une synthèse archéologique en est présentée ici, qui part de la fondation sous Ptolémée Ier pour s’achever à l’époque médiévale.
