5.0 von 5 Sternen Mapping ancient Egypt...
Ancient Egypt through the eyes of someone, who loves what he is doing. And it shows in his writing. He tells us, what the Theban Mapping Project is and how it came to exist. It eventually leads him to discover KV5, one of the most recent and most talked about discoveries in the Valley of the Kings. Great read, very exciting, you feel as if you are digging that tomb...

On page 229; "Amunhotep IV changed his own name to Akhenaton, "Agreeable to the Aten"" which is inconsistent with page 233; "Akhenaton, "Agreeable to Aton"".
Am 20. Juli 1999 veröffentlicht

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mapping ancient Egypt..., 1. November 2002
Ancient Egypt through the eyes of someone, who loves what he is doing. And it shows in his writing. He tells us, what the Theban Mapping Project is and how it came to exist. It eventually leads him to discover KV5, one of the most recent and most talked about discoveries in the Valley of the Kings. Great read, very exciting, you feel as if you are digging that tomb together with Kent Weeks and his team. And he throws in some new theories of his own on what it could all mean. Very readable, not just a dry recount of events and it wants you to read more about it all. It also gives you a nice look into the Upper Egypt of today and its people.

I loved reading this book and found it well written. I'm not expert on the subject, but I felt this was a great book. And he seems very well qualified to have written on this subject!

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Lost Tomb: In 1995, An American Egyptologist Discovered The Burial Site Of The Sons Of Ramesses Ii--this Is His (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I found the book very interesting for those who - like myeself - are interested in Egypt only as a general subject. I think other readers'criticisms about this book are unfair if you are aware that it is not meant to be a professional survey of the exploration of the tomb.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A bit of a jumble, but worth the time of author and reader., 24. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Lost Tomb: In 1995, An American Egyptologist Discovered The Burial Site Of The Sons Of Ramesses Ii--this Is His (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Upon receiving this book as a Christmas gift, I was elated beyond description. Granted, it took me a while to finish the book (I'll admit, the jumps from one topic to another are prevalent) but upon it's completion, I was ever the more so inclined to work my butt off to earn my education money to study the shared passion of Dr. Weeks and myself - Egyptology. This book is a must read for anyone even remotely interested in the anthropological field. Dr. Weeks does not write under the false pretense that his book is meant to be a source of technological procedures used in archaeological digs. He comes right out and says that if you want to read HOW to dig, this book isn't going to teach you. For a book taken from journals/diaries and personal experiences, it is simply amazing. The historical information provided is wonderfully unpatronizing. Dr. Weeks does not assume the reader knows nothing of anthropology, and yet it is understandable, not overly pretentious of his achievements in his chosen field. I highly reccommend this book to anyone going into anthro/archaeology, as well as to those who just have a general interest in the topic.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Extremely factual, historically relevant and interesting., 21. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Lost Tomb: In 1995, An American Egyptologist Discovered The Burial Site Of The Sons Of Ramesses Ii--this Is His (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Having just completed Dr. Weeks work, The Lost Tomb, I was impressed by his level of detail, research and overall comprehensive effort on the subject of KV-5. Dr. Weeks provides a thorough summary of the history of archaeology during the period prior to, and during the discovery of the Tomb. He provided ample background text that serves to engage the reader into the history and mystery of ancient Egypt. As a talented archaeologist, he further provides a first hand depiction of the effort and expertize required to thoroughly excavate an archaeological treasure of this potential magnitude. My wife and I are planning a trip to the Valley of the Kings and will certainly look forward to perhaps observing Dr. Weeks and his team as they continue their efforts.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good reading for "faux" egyptologist!!!, 20. Juni 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Lost Tomb: In 1995, An American Egyptologist Discovered The Burial Site Of The Sons Of Ramesses Ii--this Is His (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I liked this book. Kent Weeks makes his KV5 experience personal and includes the reader throughout "Lost Tomb". I like the fact that he explains the back ground of various events and problems he comes across while trying to map out Thebes. I would recommend this book to people like me . . . people who have never been to Egypt, but who hope to go one day; people who have read alot of books by archeologists and egyptologists but have no formal education on the subject; and finally, people who like to read good books. Good job, Mr. Weeks. I look forward to reading your next book.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Lost Tomb: In 1995, An American Egyptologist Discovered The Burial Site Of The Sons Of Ramesses Ii--this Is His (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Ignore the nit-picking criticisms of some of the other attached reviews by would-be egyptologists; Weeks' discovery and subsequent investigation of a significant unexplored section of a tomb dismissed by the "professional" community has provoked much jealous, petty sniping. The facts are that his credentials are well established, as any read of the book will show, and his team's persistence uncovered what may yet turn out to be one of the most extensive sites in the Valley. Furthermore, he deserves additional praise for potentially saving an incredible location that was actively endangered by encroaching twentieth century activity, as anyone who actually has the interests of the science at heart would attest. If you are at all interested in the subject, his account is engaging and readable; the excitement of the discovery is well captured and conveyed to the reader. Furthermore, his commentary on the people and culture of modern Egypt is well worth reading, illustrating how politics and archaeology are unfortunately sometimes inseparable and how a true professional in the field must understand both to be effective. Do not let wanna-be armchair quarterbacks dissuade you from enjoying this book; I for one look forward to additional documentation of the other areas of the complex, as they are opened, and trust that Weeks will be working and contributing to the field for years to come.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An account of painstakingly rediscoverimg Egypt's lost tombs, 17. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Lost Tomb: In 1995, An American Egyptologist Discovered The Burial Site Of The Sons Of Ramesses Ii--this Is His (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book was written by a longtime, dedicated Egyptologist who has invested much of his profession, time, and money, to not only painstakingly rediscover one of Egypt's most famous tombs, but to help map and preserve this and many others. He is truly a pioneer in Egyptology, and gives a rewarding and graphic account of all of his ongoing research, as well as shares with you his personal journey that finally brought him to the spectacular ruins of Egypt. Kent R. Weeks also weaves history throughout his book, so that you don't have to be an archeologist to understand what he is saying. A must read for anyone interested in coming up to date with what is happening with the ancient Egyptian tombs.

1.0 von 5 Sternen The faults just keep coming!, 23. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Lost Tomb: In 1995, An American Egyptologist Discovered The Burial Site Of The Sons Of Ramesses Ii--this Is His (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I know I have reviewed this piece of Egyptological shame before, but having had more time to review, I now realize I was far too kind in my prior statement. To students of the field such as myself, I say don't waste your money. Spend it on notables such as Aldred and Tyldesley, sources you can rely on. Not only does this sorry 'source' make the previously mentioned mistake of mislabeling the mummy of Ramesses II, but the author also miscounts the number of Akhenaten and Nefertiti's daughters (six, not five, Kent), and those are only the mistakes I caught on my first time through. I am in high school, and here I am finding horrendous mistakes like this in the publications of a 'veteran'? I'm sorry, but if he is this careless about a mere book, why is this man being allowed to work within the pricincts of the blessed Valley?
