In April 1981 a team of archaeologists and scientists started work on a rare event - the unwrapping of an Egyptian mummy. This was the main stage of a project that had started with the examination by X-ray of all the mummies in the collection of the Bristol Museums and Art Gallery, inspired by the late Dr. Joe Sluglett OBE. The focus of the Project was the mummy of a man identified from inscriptions on his coffin as Horemkenesi. Because the bandages were crumbling away, he was unwrapped in order to gain as much knowledge as possible. It was a case of 'investigate or incinerate'.

Egyptian coffins stand out in museum collections for their lively and radiant appearance. As a container of the mummy, coffins played a key role by protecting the body and, at the same time, integrating the deceased in the afterlife. The paramount importance of these objects and their purpose is detected in the ways they changed through time. For more than three thousand years, coffins and tombs had been designed to assure in the most efficient way possible a successful outcome for the difficult transition to the afterlife. This book examines eight non-royal tombs found relatively intact, from the plains of Saqqara to the sacred hills of Thebes. These almost undisturbed burial sites managed to escape ancient looters and so their discoveries, from Mariette’s exploration of the Mastaba of Ti in Saqqara to Schiaparelli’s discovery of the Tomb of Kha and Merit in Deir el-Medina, were sensational events in Egyptian archaeology. Each one of these sites unveils before our eyes a time capsule, where coffins and tombs were designed together as part of a social, political and religious order. From Predynastic times to the decline of the New Kingdom, this book explores each site revealing the interconnection between mummification practices, coffin decoration, burial equipment, tomb decoration and ritual landscapes. Through this analysis, the author aims to point out how the design of coffins changed through time in order to empower the deceased with different visions of immortality. By doing so, the study of coffins reveals a silent revolution which managed to open to ordinary men and women horizons of divinity previously reserved for the royal sphere. Coffins thus show us how identity was forged to create an immortal and divine self.

This volume proposes a theoretical andmethodological framework for the study of "yellow" coffins, which is one of themost extensive corpus of funerary objects from Ancient Egypt, and the mostcomplex in terms of decoration. It presents a synthetic view on Egyptian coffindecoration during the II millennium B.C. together with in-depth examination ofa sample of nine previously unpublished burial assemblages. Dating from the 21st-22ndDynasties, these objects were chosen to showcase the stages of development incoffin decoration detected in the "yellow" corpus, as well as variations instyle and layout. A new formal typology of this corpus is proposed, allowing abetter understanding of the dynamics of coffin decoration in Theban workshops.

This book gathers a collection of studies by leading scholars on the Tomb of the Priests of Amun (Bab el-Gasus), where the burials of 153 individuals who lived under the 21st Dynasty have been unearthed, revealing the largest undisturbed tomb ever found in Egypt. This is the first publication to present a coherent vision of this find, with papers addressing a variety of topics including: the reorganization of the Theban necropolis under the 21st Dynasty; the sociological significance of the burials, as well as the funerary goods associated with them; the history of the collections that had been given away to foreign countries in 1893, including their reception and subsequent treatment in museums around the world and in Egypt; carpentry and decoration of anthropoid coffins, using non-invasive analysis of materials; and finally, diversity and meaning of coffin decoration. The volume releases the papers first presented at the international conference held at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the discovery of the Tomb.
