Format: Paperback
One of the great things about ancient Egypt is its mystery, and there are few episodes in its history more mysterious and more potentially important than the life and death of Yuya (Iouiya) and Thuyu (Touiyou).
Yuya and Thuyu were commoners, Yuya may have been a chariot officer during the hight of Egypt's empire, Thuyu may have been a servant in the royal palace... whatever their origins, the couple's young daughter, Tiyi, became the chief wife of the teenage pharaoh Amenhotep III. This was strange enough, but then this rags-to-richs couple was granted a tomb in the royal cemetary in the so-called Valley of The Kings, and strangest of all was the fact that their tomb should have survived some 3,300 years largely intact until it could be discovered by an archaeological mission in 1905.
The two volumes reprinted in this work are two of the three basic source books on this discovery, the third, "The Tomb of Yuaa and Thuiu" by J.E. Quibell (Cairo, 1908) remains a scarce work to find.
I was overjoyed to learn that Duckworth Books had reprinted this important work. With its old-fashioned prose and typeset, it is an enjoyable visit to what has been called "the golden age of Egyptology" when major finds were made almost every day and enormous leaps were being made in the understanding of ancient Egyptian history, language and culture.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Edward H. Carlson on February 22, 2010
Format: Paperback
KV46 is the tomb of Yuya and Tjuyu (or Tuyu), great grandparents of Tutankhamen. Although they were not royals, (at least the husband, Yuya, was not), they were buried in the Valley of the Kings because they were the parents of Tiye, the queen of Amenhotep III. Thus they are great grandparents of Tutankhamen. The product description and the first review tell most of what is important about this book. However, the Discovery Channel program of 21 February 2010 has dropped a bombshell, in that the DNA studies of 11 mummies, including Tutankhamen, Yuya, and Tuyu, have anchored the relationships of 4 generations of royal Egyptians. While this tomb was robbed (lightly) in ancient times, it nevertheless when found in the 20th century contained many interesting objects, including the mummies of Tuyu and Yuya, each in their sarcophagus. This book is part of the Duckworth Egyptology series, and is printed on glossy paper in a large format. It is written in the leisurely style of academic studies long past. The many black and white photographs detail the objects found in the tomb. A forward by Nicholas Reeves sets the scene for the topic of this book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There should be more works such as this with the hieroglyphic inscriptions and history of the personages of Ancient Egypt. I have the Papyrus of Ani and this--The Tomb of Iouiya and Tiouiyou, with the Funereal Papyrus of Iouiya. Where is Tutankhamun, Nebseni, Nu, et. al.? I am building an Ancient Egyptian library for myself and family and would love to buy these types of works from Amazon.com!!!
