This stunning volume is a rarity among Ancient Egyptian art books in being devoted not to remains of royalty but to the tombs of private people—it is the first book in English on this subject.Sigrid Hodel-Hoenes leads us on an expedition to the cemetery used by the officials of New Kingdom Egypt on the eastern flanks of the Western mountain across from Thebes, between the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens. She examines the contents of eleven tombs belonging to civil servants, the private people of this ancient city. (All of these tombs are currently accessible to the public in a vast open-air museum.) Lavishly illustrated, with many color photographs and a selection of line drawings, the book provides details of the location, layout, structure, and decoration of the tombs. Hodel-Hoenes addresses such subjects as the two-dimensional art of New Kingdom Thebes, the contents of the tombs, the pigments used in the artists' paints, and the symbolism of the colors and the scenes depicted in the tomb paintings and reliefs A generous bibliography facilitates further exploration of the tombs and their meaning.

Excerpt from The Tombs of Ancient Egypt To understand the tombs of Ancient Egypt, their arrangement and the scenes painted on the walls, we must realize that the Egyptian's idea of the tomb differed entirely from our own. With us the tomb is the resting-place of the mortal body until, in the course of nature, it shall decay and perish; with the Egyptian it was the depository of the body which they by embalmment endeavoured to preserve from destruction, as they fondly hoped, for ever, and they called it the body's eternal home. With us the immortal part of man is, at death, freed absolutely from the mortal body; with the Egyptian the two were in constant relationship. The Egyptians regarded man as composed of different entities, each of which had its separate life and functions.

The Book of the Dead is a unique collection of funerary texts from a wide variety of sources, dating from the fifteenth to the fourth century BC. Consisting of spells, prayers and incantations, each section contains the words of power to overcome obstacles in the afterlife. The papyruses were often left in sarcophagi for the dead to use as passports on their journey from burial, and were full of advice about the ferrymen, gods and kings they would meet on the way. Offering valuable insights into ancient Egypt, The Book of the Dead has also inspired fascination with the occult and the afterlife in recent years.
