Weeks does more damage than good,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Valley of the Kings: The Tombs and the Funerary of Thebes West (Hardcover)
Weeks' excavation techniques are totally atrocious. He has caused a great deal of damage to be done in the Valley of the Kings by allowing expanded limestone, painted walls to contract too rapidly, thus making the walls and roofs collapse and crack. It is hard to believe that for someone so interested in this area that he would totally ignore conservation aspects. Please don't buy this book and know that you are saving a treasure! Look for "THE COMPLETE VALLEY OF THE KINGS" by Reeves and Wilkinson for a better read anyway.
