Ancient Lives: The Story of the Pharaohs’ Tombmakers
John Romer (au)
More than 3,000 years ago a village was established at Thebes on the banks of the Nile. It housed the workers who created the tombs of the Pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. Stonemasons, painters, sculptors, quarrymen and scribes lived with their wives and children in the village, and worked closely together. Romer has recreated the villagers’ lives in intimate detail. He tells us of their quarrels and rivalries, sickness and health, marriages and deaths, of the effects of flood, pillage and war. Romer traces the fortunes of the villagers from the great days of Ramesses II through the slow decline of the Egyptian empire. “A fascinating account of the day-to-day lives and thoughts of ordinary people who created some of ancient Egypt’s finest treasures.” Illus.
