Item description for Atlas of the Valley of the Kings (The Theban mapping project) by Kent R. Weeks...
The result of twenty years of work, the Atlas of the Valley of the Kings provides the first detailed surveyed maps and plans ever produced of one of the most famous World Heritage sites. From the tomb of Tutankhamun to the recently-discovered tomb of the sons of Ramesses II, all of the significant and accessible tombs in the valley are included. In this new one-volume study edition, the Atlas gives 1:200 plans, sections, and three-dimensional isometric drawings of each tomb, along with larger-scale maps of the entire Valley and background information on the work of the Theban Mapping Project and its surveying techniques. Of great value to archaeologists and conservators, the Atlas of the Valley of the Kings has already become a basic Egyptological reference.

Reviews - What do customers think about Atlas of the Valley of the Kings (The Theban mapping project)?
Great Guide!!!!! Mar 15, 2006
This guide is easy to use and allows the user to examine the tombs of the Valley of the Kings from different angles. The guide provides maps for all of tombs with the exception of the tomb discovered in early February 2006 (KV 63). A great resourse for anyone interested in the Valley of the Kings!!!
Not What I Expected Jan 6, 2006
This book was not at all what I was expecting. Having read an article about this project and the author in a magazine, I was expecting a detailed history of the project, with comments from the author, pictures of the excavations, overall maps of the area, specific locations of tombs, and pictures or descriptions of artifacts inside. What I got was a book of blueprints of the tombs - interesting to some, perhaps, but not what I wanted.
What a resource! Oct 5, 2005
What a wonderful study edition helping you to examine the tombs in the Valley of the Kings in a more scrutinious manner. It gives you every single tomb with images from different angles. Of course, there is a whole collection of maps in one edition, but this edition comprises all this in a book. It's amazing.
