Book Description

Nov. 15 2003 American University in Cairo Press
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a resource! Oct. 5 2005
By T. Sawyer - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide!!!!! March 15 2006
By Richard Blake - Published on Amazon.com
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!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars great and only one issue Dec 6 2009

Great book...exactly what I was hoping for. The only problem I have with it is that the tombs are presented in KV number order. Because the tombs are numbered by the rather stupid criterion of the order they were excavated, it is difficult to trace the development of the architecture. One has to flip through the book all over the place to do so. It would have made much more sense to present them in the order they were created (or at least present them in both ways but that would have doubled the size and cost of the book). Two things I would love to see...a new updated edition that includes the full length of the tunnel under KV17 (now being cleared by gas bag Hawass), the updated plan for KV5 (with the 3D view from the opposite angle so we can see corridor 25), KV63, AND the addition of material form TMP's web site (pictures, descriptions, resources, etc.)...a sort of 'illuminated' edition.

Wonderful Atlas. Large, very large. My biggest problem was finding a place to store it when not in use. Wonderful work and intricate detail of the tombs. My son has been to Egypt, but I am not able to do so and this just helps me to see for myself. There is also a terrific online tool we have been given access to as well.
