Description
In 1915, a team of American archaeologists in Bersha, Egypt, blasted through solid rock to reach a tomb later to be designated as "10A." Inside this tomb they found a mummy, an exquisitely painted coffin, and arguably the largest assemblage of burial artifacts ever discovered from the Middle Kingdom. Because of the delicate power balance between the king and local bureaucrats, the Middle Kingdom (the least known of the three ancient Egyptian kingdoms) was a time of unprecedented splendor, as regional potentates were lavished with rewards and buried in a style normally reserved for royalty. Tomb 10A was prepared for one such potentate, Governor Djehutynakht, and its treasures—which survived World War I, a ship's fire, and nearly a century of basement storage—include jewelry, walking sticks, a phenomenally large collection of model boats, architectural miniatures and even the severed (if nicely painted) head of Djehutynakht himself. Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, this catalog explores the full breadth and meaning of these treasures, seen in more than 160 illustrations, including a double gatefold (36 inches long) depicting the intricately inscribed lid of the governor's coffin.
