The result of 20 years of work, this atlas provides detailed surveyed maps and plans produced from one of the most famous World Heritage sites. From the tomb of Tutankhamun to the tomb of the sons of Ramesses II, all of the significant and accessible tombs in the valley are included. In this one-volume study edition, the atlas gives 1:125 plans, sections and three-dimensional isometric drawings of each tomb, along with larger-scale maps of the entire Valley and background information of the Theban Mapping Project and its surveying techniques.
