Item description for Kv5: A Preliminary Report on the Excavation of the Tomb of the Sons of Ramesses II in the Valley of the Kings, Revised Edition (Publications of the Theban Mapping Project) by Kent R. Weeks...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kv5: A Preliminary Report on the Excavation of the Tomb of the Sons of Ramesses II in the Valley of the Kings, Revised Edition (Publications of the Theban Mapping Project)?

controversial  Nov 18, 2009
great reading easy to understand but controversial last chapter regarding the plagues and red sea
 
KV5: A Preliminary Report  Oct 3, 2008
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.
