Item description for Treasures of Luxor and the Valley of the Kings: Cultural Travel Guide (Rizzoli Art Guide) by Kent R. Weeks...

Here is a thorough, easy-to-use guide to the vast and stunning collection of art and antiquities found in Egypt's archaeological paradise, the Valley of the Kings. The Tomb of Tutankhamun and its contents are featured prominently, as are the temples of Luxor and Karnak, the dromos, the Luxor Museum, the Chapel of Achoris, the Valley of Asasif, the Ramesseum, the Valley of the Queens, and the Colossi of Memnon. Dendera, Esna, Abydos Edfu, and Korn Ombo-all peripheral locations to the major sites-are included because their state of preservation makes them especially interesting for visitors and scholars. Weeks has spent his career documenting the regions and infuses this guide with a level of clarity and detail not previously achieved in a handbook.
Kent Weeks has conducted archaeological work in Egypt since 1983 and has worked for over 30 years in Thebes and the Valley of the Kings. He is Professor of Egyptology at the American University in Cairo and Director of the Theban Mapping Project.
