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 Amazon.com: Africa and Africans in Antiquity assesses recent historical research and archaeology under way in Egypt, North Africa, the Sudan, and the Horn of Africa. Whereas many European and American scholars of earlier generations believed that Egyptian contacts with Africa to the south were not culturally significant, research contained in this important collection rejects such notions. At the same time, the volume takes issue with Afrocentric scholars who argue that most Egyptians were "black" and that blacks are the rightful heirs to Egypt's past grandeur. These ten thought-provoking essays demonstrate that this large region was an ethnic and cultural mosaic in antiquity, a place where Phoenicians, Berbers, Greeks, as well as Egyptians and Nubians interacted.

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.
Akhmim in the Old Kingdom

Categories :  Archaeological Sites & Cities  
From AEB: "The excavation of the tombs of el-Hawawish, the necropolis of Akhmim, capital of the 9th Upper Egyptian nome, has considerably enlarged the knowledge of its long and continuous successions of holders of certain offices. Therefore, this book concentrates on the chronology and the civil and religious administration of one of the most important and influential centres in Upper Egypt in the Old Kingdom."
