While working as a Congregational minister in England, Norman de Garis Davies (1865-1941) developed an interest in Egyptology. In 1897 he joined Flinders Petrie's excavations at Dendera as a copyist of inscriptions and sculptures. He did further work for the Egypt Exploration Fund, producing many volumes of archaeological surveys, which won him the Leibniz medal of the Prussian Academy of Sciences. This 1913 work describes five tombs of named individuals in the Theban necropolis, some previously partially excavated. For each, Davies supplies a description of the architecture, the artefacts found inside, and the paintings and inscriptions which covered the walls (the colour images and larger illustrations can be downloaded and viewed from http://www.cambridge.org/9781108083683). Translations and interpretations of the inscriptions are also provided, along with the various pieces of evidence by which each tomb can be dated. Other site reports by Davies are also reissued in this series.
