Abstract:

"For Geoffrey Martin and his colleagues, the internationally acclaimed discovery of the tomb of Maya, Tutankhamun's treasurer, was the culmination of a painstaking ten-year search at Saqqara, the burial ground of Memphis, ancient capital of Egypt. Maya had been one of the most important men during the boy-king's short reign. Exploration of his tomb, and those of other important officials in the necropolis, has opened a new chapter in our understanding of Egyptian society more than 3,000 years ago."--Page 4 of cover.
