Synopsis

In the foothills of the Theban massif in southern Egypt, not far from the Valley of the Kings, lie hundreds of unique and wonderfully decorated tombs from the New Kingdom belonging to the people who served the pharaohs. "The Lost Tombs of Thebes" gives the reader unprecedented and privileged access to a selection of these extraordinary monuments. The beautiful scenes and texts that adorn their walls include some of the most exquisite examples of Egyptian art to be found anywhere in the land of the Nile. Combining scholarship with superb photography, including numerous foldouts, this magnificent volume will bring these lost tombs back into the light and illuminate the mysterious world of ancient Thebes and the nobles who lived and died there in Egypts Golden Age.
