    DescriptionBefore the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, the greatest find ever made in the Valley of the Kings was the 3000-year-old tomb of Yuya (Iouiya) and Tjuyu (Touiyou), parents-in-law of king Amenophis III of the 18th Dynasty. The tomb contained their wonderfully preserved mummies, lying within magnificent coffins and surrounded by a gorgeous array of palace furniture and funerary equipment. "The Tomb of Iouiya and Touiyou" and of "The Funeral Papyrus of Iouiya", the excavator's official reports on this important find, edited by Theodore M. Davis and with contributions from Gaston Maspero, Percy E. Newberry, and Edouard Naville, were first published in a limited edition in 1907 and 1908 and are reprinted here in one volume. The non-photographic illustrations are by Howard Carter.
