The energy devoted by the ancient Egyptians to their tombs is legendary. The pyramids of Gizeh and the tomb of Tutankhamun are just two very spectacular examples, but no previous book has sought to use the tens of thousands of tombs excavated in Egypt, dating from 5000 BC to AD 200, across all classes of society, to build up a broad picture of burial as practised across the millennia. In this fascinating treatment, Wolfram Grajetzki sets out to remove some widespread misconceptions. Many imagine that few tombs survived undisturbed into modern times, but this is simply not true. In addition to the richest finds, there are numerous other tombs, devoid of gold and precious objects, which are key sources for reconstructing burial customs and Eygptian culture as a whole. This book sets the record straight, presenting evidence from each of the periods covered of poorer and average graves alongside the more famous wealthy tombs. The book is accessbily written and richly illustrated with over 150 illustrations, many specially prepared by the author.

This is an account of Garstang's excavations at the necropolis of Beni Hassan during 1902-04. Finding many intact burials of court officials with the original elaborate furniture of the tomb in their original positions, Garstang was able to undertake a meticulous description of all details of the interments including funeral rites and emblems, clothing and adornment of the person, and arts and crafts used in the burial. The work is particularly notable for the light it throws on the daily lives and deaths of men and women of the middle classes in ancient Egypt.
