Nestled in a valley of the Theban mountain in Upper Egypt, the Deir el-Medina site provides an exceptional opportunity to explore Egyptian society during the Ramesside Period and to study the professional, economic, social and artistic life at the time, as well as the historical events through which the village population lived.

This book takes stock of the work carried out on this community of craftsmen, laborers and artists who strove to give their pharaohs a final resting-place in the Valley of the Kings.
