This book investigates the family histories and relationships of the royal artisans who lived in the village of Deir el-Medîna during the Ramesside Period – from the highest ranking officials to the ordinary workman. The author has provided a unique reference work that traces the careers of the community’s most important personalities. The results of his meticulous research will undoubtedly serve as an indispensable tool in the identification of individuals and in the dating and interpretation of texts from this unique Egyptian settlement.
