Item description for The Tomb-Builders of the Pharaohs by M. L. Bierbrier...

This fascinating study brings to life the people who lived and died at Deir el-Medina over three thousand years ago--the workers who built the tombs of the pharaohs in the nearby Valley of the Kings. Dr. Bierbrier draws on the thousands of documents, letters, literary texts, and drawings found at the site to give an intimate glimpse of life in the village.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Tomb-Builders of the Pharaohs?

An Excellent history of a little known group of Egyptians  Aug 27, 1999
The valley of the Kings in Egypt has enticed numerous archeologists in search of the burial sites of the Pharoahs. These remarkable tombs were built by skilled workers who had a special city built for them and their families. Mr. Bierbrier has researched and done a scholarly work about these workers and their day to day lives. We learn that the more things change, the more they stay the same, as the same day to day and family problems that we have today are very much the same as those who lived 3,000 years ago. It is certainly a distant mirror and one that students of Egypt will enjoy. It is well written and I am particularly proud of this book as Mr. Bierbrier is a cousin of mine. This however did not affect my opinion of this fine work.
