It also illuminates the work of key scholars who excavated and catalogued their finds for posterity, and it includes a comprehensive list of the principal cemeteries, with glossary and maps for ease of reference. Richly illustrated with photographs of the monuments and their art, plus numerous diagrams and reconstruction drawings, this is an essential and authoritative resource for all those passionate about ancient Egypt."--BOOK JACKET."
