    DescriptionThis volume is the result of a collaborative effort to reconstruct the 15th-century BC tomb of three foreign wives of Tuthmosis III, discovered and robbed by villagers near Luxor in 1916. A general account was published by Herbert Winlock in 1948 ("The Treasure of Three Egyptian Princesses", New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art). The present book differs substantially in the type and extent of documentation provided and in interpretation. Verification is provided of tomb provenance for a number of objects, for example, when objects previously thought to have come from the tomb are now considered forgeries. The text explores and documents: the location of the tomb in the southwest valleys at Thebes; field work conducted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art at the site in 1988; art market finds alleged to have come from the tomb; and the names of the foreign wives and the lives they might have led.
