This work is of great importance to the study of Egyptology. Detailed but isolated studies have been made of several Late Period tombs and other groups of tombs have been discussed comparatively. Royal tombs have been studied in depth. However, until now there has not been a comprehensive survey and analysis of all the non-royal Egyptian tombs of the Late Period. This book details the architecture, decoration and textual content of all the known non- royal Egyptian tombs of the Period, both within the Nile Valley and elsewhere, as well as the artefacts found within them. It categorises the tombs into a new typology, enabling easy cross-reference of differing types of tomb in different areas, and it discusses the development of the tombs from their earlier architectural forms. It considers why important types of tomb were developed in some areas, while in other areas different types of tomb were created. No work of a similar nature has previously been undertaken, making this an essential reference work for the student of this period of Egyptian history; it will also be of great interest to the student of archaeology and the history of art and architecture.
