Editorial Reviews

Review

"The authors provide detailed and accurate information about life in the city. This is an excellent, recommended, must-read book for all."―Frankie's Reviews in Egyptology

"The authors bring together their extensive collective knowledge and experience with both ancient Waset (Thebes) and modern Luxor to create in this volume what qualifies as the best comprehensive general study to date of arguably the single most important site in all of Egypt, archeologically speaking. . . This is a work that should not go ignored."―KMT, Winter 1999-2000.

"Nigel and Helen Strudwick have provided the first comprehensive treatment of the most important archaeological site in Egypt. No other location, with the possible exception of Saqqara, has yielded material from all the major epochs of Egyptian history. Clearly written and well organized, the book presents valuable new information about its subject."―James F. Romano, Brooklyn Museum of Art

About the Author

Helen Strudwick is outreach officer for ancient Egypt at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, and archaeological director of the Cambridge mission to document private tombs at Luxor, Egypt.

Format: Paperback
This book differs from the usual guides, as it describes the historical evolution, from the Old Kingdom to the Late Period, of the tombs and temples of Thebes (modern Luxor). The authors provide detailed and accurate information about life in the city. Subjects covered include the Valley of the Kings, that of the Queens and of the Nobles. Issues such as tomb decoration and burials of private individuals are addressed. This is an excellent, recommended, must-read book for all.
