Book Description

1 Jan 2006 Publications of the Theban Mapping Project (Book 2)
The discovery in 1995 that a long-ignored doorway in the Valley of the Kings was actually the entrance to the largest tomb ever found in Egypt made headlines around the world. Called "KV5", it contains over 150 corridors and chambers, and was used as a family mausoleum for several sons of the New Kingdom pharaoh, Ramesses II. The first edition of this preliminary report was the first comprehensive, technical publication on the work of the Theban Mapping Project in the tomb; it has now been revised and expanded to take account of the latest discoveries and analyses. It includes detailed archaeological and architectural studies, epigraphic surveys, object and pottery descriptions, discussions of conservation work, and extensive reports on the site's geology, hydrology, mineralogy, and geotechnical engineering. Copiously illustrated with photographs and line drawings, "KV5" is the essential source for the study of this fascinating and important tomb.

5.0 out of 5 stars KV5 11 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's great to have an archaeological report in such an accessible format. Have already read the book about KV5 (The Lost Tomb) so this is an adjunct to it. Probably only for serious archaeology nerds though.

5.0 out of 5 stars KV5: A Preliminary Report 3 Oct 2008
By William L. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I first learned of KV5 about 10 years ago when the National Geographic article appeared. Shortly after that I came across and read Kent Weeks book "The Lost Tomb". This is a further extension of that work and well worth the wait. While a little technical at times, this is a must have book for anyone interested in the Valley of the Kings and the New Kingdom era.
