Kurzbeschreibung

4. November 1996 Complete
This account of the Valley of the Kings brings together its art, archaelogy and history in one volume arranged thematically. Famous as the burial place of the great New Kingdom pharaohs - such as Tutankhamun, Ramesses the Great and Tuthmosis IV - this valley contains some 80 tombs which were dug at the climax of Egyptian power more than 3000 years ago. The account includes full descriptions of over 80 tombs, complete with factfiles, lists of contents and computer-generated perspective cutaway views. It describes the burials and mummies of famous pharaohs, from Tutankhamun and gives a blow-by-blow account of the rediscovery of the tombs, from Greek and Roman times to Howard Carter and the present day. It details the latest research by the international teams in the valley, including the discovery of the tomb for the sons of Ramesses the Great. The planning and ritual purpose of the tombs is also described, from the royal workforce to the scenes from the mysterious "afterlife" books adorning the tomb wall. A full reference section, including a guide to visiting the valley, is also given.

Synopsis

This account of the Valley of the Kings brings together its art, archaelogy and history in one volume arranged thematically. Famous as the burial place of the great New Kingdom pharaohs - such as Tutankhamun, Ramesses the Great and Tuthmosis IV - this valley contains some 80 tombs which were dug at the climax of Egyptian power more than 3000 years ago. The account includes full descriptions of over 80 tombs, complete with factfiles, lists of contents and computer-generated perspective cutaway views. It describes the burials and mummies of famous pharaohs, from Tutankhamun and gives a blow-by-blow account of the rediscovery of the tombs, from Greek and Roman times to Howard Carter and the present day. It details the latest research by the international teams in the valley, including the discovery of the tomb for the sons of Ramesses the Great. The planning and ritual purpose of the tombs is also described, from the royal workforce to the scenes from the mysterious "afterlife" books adorning the tomb wall. A full reference section, including a guide to visiting the valley, is also given.

Unlike the Chronicle of the Pharaohs, this compiled information is not lacking except for in those finer details that are hardly mentioned, anyway. As a great fan of the Valley of the Kings, I found this book worthy of its subject. All the tombs and pit tombs are mentioned, ground-plans shown when available. Many artifacts rarely seen are published here in wonderful plates, and many more artifacts are mentioned in the list of contents bestowed upon each tomb. A small portion of the royal mummies are shown in the back as a sort of family album, many others being shown throughout the book. I found most interesting the picture of the mummy found with the nurse of the great Hatchepsut and thought to possibly be Hatchepsut, herself. This is a great book to have share a shelf with the works of John Romer and other intimates of the Valley of the Kings. For those--like myself--who plan to join the rank of those intimates, this book is a must

4.0 von 5 Sternen complete in every sense of the word 16. Juni 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I was engrossed for days when I first got this book. The attention to detail is staggering, 'complete' in every sense of the word. With excellent maps and background information the authors prepare the way gently with analysis and discussion of general methods of tomb building and the belief system behind it. What I found particularly useful was a history of the tomb diggers and archaeologists who discovered (and plundered) the tombs, going all the way up to Theodore M Davies and of course Howard Carter. Their methods, desires and successes underscore the rest of the book: the tombs themselves and help to put a human face on the ancient world of the Pharaohs.
In many ways these men were amateur violators, thieves no-less, but our modern interest stem from them and their legacy.
Vastly illustrated throughout, colour balanced with black and white photography and the simple, but enormously effective line drawings in 3D of the tomb layouts and designs. Comparison of style, form and development is instantly possible.
"Who's who in KV35" typically illustrates the book's grasp of controversial issues, supporting the wide range of modern scholarly thought, while attempting to be neutral.
Detail is a very much a part of this survey. Inscriptions and archaeological evidence recorded faithfully alongside "fact files"of the discoveries, right down to where the reports were published etc. This adds a flavour of complete authenticity which supports the book. Good index, further reading and sources. One small criticism: occasionally little too detailed for light reading and not always enough background on the Pharaohs' themselves, but this could be easily solved with reference to another suitable book.
Excellent, recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A MUST Introductory Read 9. März 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Unfortunately, I bought and read the book AFTER visiting the valley and many tombs (in pleasant March!). While I had a rough idea of what certain tombs were about, one looked like the other (after 2 hours) and I lost interest (along with many hundreds of visitors).

The book by Reeves provides a well made introduction not only to the valley but also to ancient Egypt. Even after returning home I continued to read the book with its great photographs, maps and drawings that provide the right mix of facts, history and related stories that a non-archeology student can digest!

While in Egypt I searched extensively (in Luxor and Cairo) for one or two books that I could read to get a better understanding of ancient and modern Egypt (even if Reeves covers only the valley) and I am still happy I bought his book (although at a considerable premium at the AUC bookstore!).

If you go to Luxor BUY IT!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Reference book for news on 'Valley of the Kings' 4. Juni 2014
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
When a recent discovery of tombs was announced, I needed a book that would give me a map, an overview of neighbouring tombs, etc. For that purpose, this book by Reeves and Wilkinson is still the best there is.
I bought a second hand edition; as it turned out a former library book in good condition. It is nicely wrapped in a plastic, transparant cover as libraries do to protect the outside of a book.

I had a prompt delivery and enjoy Amazon's service by linking second hand books to new.
