Deir el-Gebrawi, volume 1: The Northern Cliff

Series: ACE Reports (23)
Deir el-Gebrawi was one of the most important provinces in the Old Kingdom, with governors buried there holding high administrative positions, including that of vizier. The cemetery occupies two separate cliffs, the nothern one of which received very limited attention from Norman de Garis Davies, who first published it in 1902. The new record includes all the surviving information on the architecture, art and inscriptions in the tombs of the northern cliff, as well as reproductions of certain sections from Davies' publication, where these have deteriorated or been vandalized since 1902. The volume contains records on the tombs of Henqu I and II and Hemre/Isi I and II, and others, all documented in colour plates and line drawings.
