This book contains 27 contributions by authors from various countries, all dealing with the ancient Egyptian village of Deir el-Medîna. Most contributions focus on the New Kingdom community of Deir el-Medîna, when the village was inhabited by the workmen who constructed and decorated the royal tombs of western Thebes. The contributions include publications of unknown texts, new interpretations of published texts, and studies of the archaeological remains, the administration, the economy, the school system, and religious life at Deir el-Medîna.
