Before the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, the greatest find ever made in the Valley of the Kings was the 3,000-year-old tomb of Yuya (Iouiya) and Tjuyu (Touiyou), parents-in-law of King Amenophis III of the 18th Dynasty. The tomb contained their wonderfully preserved mummies, lying within magnificent coffins and surrounded by a gorgeous array of palace furniture and funerary equipment. This book containing the excavator s official reports on this important find was originally published in 1907-1908.

A guide to the tombs and temples of ancient Luxor

Categories :  Monuments, Temples & Tombs  
Reviewed by Francesca: This book differs from the usual guides, as it describes the historical evolution, from the Old Kingdom to the Late Period, of the tombs and temples of Thebes (modern Luxor). The authors provide detailed and accurate information about life in the city. Subjects covered include the Valley of the Kings, that of the Queens and of the Nobles. Issues such as tomb decoration and burials of private individuals are addressed. This is an excellent, recommended, must-read book for all.

The Valley of the Kings.

Categories :  Monuments, Temples & Tombs  
From the book cover: [This] was John Romer's first book and contains two fascinating stories. The first is about the tombs of the ancient Egyptian kings, queens and nobles from three dynasties who were buried with utmost pomp and extravagance between 1570 and 1085 BC. The second, equally exciting and full of incident, is the story of archeologists and their hunt for the past.

Reviewed by Francesca: This wonderful book presents the Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, the Tombs of the Nobles and the village of Deir Al Medina. The author discusses mortuary rituals and presents many pharaohs, including those buried in the Valley of the Kings (Ramesses IX, Tuthmosis, Ramesses III, Ramesses I, Sethos I, Ramesses VI, Amenophis II, and Tuthomosis III), the queens buried in the Valley of the Queens (Nefertari, Khaemwaset, Amun-her-Khepshef) and the nobles from tombs TT 52, TT 69, TT 55, TT 96, TT 1 and TT 359. With maps, drawings, a bibliography, a chronological table and more than 150 photographs, this is an extremely worthwhile guide for travelers.
The Valley of the Kings
Horizon of eternity
Erik Hornung
ISBN 0943221072
© 1990 Timken Publishers
Categories :  Monuments, Temples & Tombs  
From Library Journal: First published in Germany in 1982 and now in its fifth and first English-text printing, Hornung's study has been revised and updated with an annotated bibliography. It remains one of the most erudite yet accessible tours of the Egyptian royal tombs, a solid record of treasures now in peril from the depredations of tourists and the changing Nile valley climate. Not only does the distinguished Swiss Egyptologist make the tomb paintings real for readers by use of plans and 151 color plates, he also captures the panoply of ancient Egyptian belief and its impact on daily life by explicating the passages from the Books of the Dead which the paintings depict. Producing an English-text edition at this time is especially crucial; it cautions the world to pay heed to jewels it is about to lose. Intended for the lay public, it is also of interest to the scholar for its cogent discussion of ancient Egyptian thought.
