Product description

Earlier published records of the mastabas at Giza have provided a wealth of information about the art, architecture, history and burial customs of Old Kingdom Egypt, but these records are now proved to be incomplete and to contain some inaccuracies. The purpose of this series is to re-record and publish some of the important tombs at Giza according to modern standards. Volume 2 in the series contains new information about two tombs originally published by Junker, Seshathetep/Heti (G5150), Nesutnefer (G4970), and a third tomb, Seshemnefer II (G5080), which until now has remained mostly unpublished. Several aspects of each tomb are examined in detail, including: the tomb's owner, his family and dependents, the dating of the tomb, architectural features, scenes and inscriptions, colour conventions, and important artefactual finds.
