Deir el-Médineh : le village des artisans de Pharaon

Author(s): Viviane  Koenig

Illustrated by Emmanuelle Étienne, Jean-Claude Golvin

€ 13.50 tax included

At the heart of the desert, on the left bank of the Nile, opposite Luxor, between the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens, lie the ruins of a village unique of its kind: what was once the dwelling place of the artists and craftsmen who, from Thutmosis I to Ramses XI, between 1500 and 1000 BC, built and decorated the tombs of the pharaohs and their entourage.

This exceptional site, now called Deir el-Medina, gives readers a glimpse into the private lives of these lesser-known Egyptians.
