Synopsis: 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.
