Tomb-Builders of the Pharaohs

Tomb-Builders of the Pharaohs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fascinating glimpse of the people - their lives, loves, disputes & work - that built the pharaohs tombs nearly 3000 years ago

Book News Annotation:

Published by The American University in Cairo, distributed in the US by Columbia UP. Bierbrier (Egyptian antiquities, Brit. Museum) elucidated the lives of commoners through excavation of the workers' homes at Deir el-Medina. One hundred illustrations. Good book, deserves better than this acidic paper.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Little is known of the everyday lives of ordinary people in ancient Egypt, but excavations at the village of Deir el-Medina have provided a unique opportunity to reconstruct the daily life of one particular group - the workmen who built the tombs of the pharaohs in the nearby Valley of the Kings. The Tomb-Builders of the Pharaohs brings to life the people who lived and died at Deir el-Medina over three thousand years ago, their loves and hates, disputes and scandals, work and leisure. Dr. Bierbrier has carried out extensive research on the tomb-builders, and draws on the thousands of documents, letters, literary texts, and drawings found at Deir el-Medina to give a fascinating and intimate glimpse of life in the village.
