Publisher's description: The Tomb of Menna (TT 69), edited by Dr. Melinda Hartwig and published in association with the American Research Center in Egypt, will offer readers a view into one of the most beautiful and complex painted tombs of the ancient Egyptian Theban necropolis. This lavishly illustrated book is the culmination of a project to document and conserve the Tomb of Menna. Through conservation, the tomb, that previously lay open to environmental influence, was brought back to its former glory. Aided by non-invasive methods of scientific analysis, the historical and cultural importance of Menna's paintings can now be viewed and studied and enjoyed by a worldwide audience. The publication joins high-definition photography and drawings with specialist essays by scholars, scientists, and technicians who discuss the artistic and cultural significance of the paintings, their architectural context, and scientific importance.
