We are very pleased to announce the publication of the long awaited The Tomb of Maya and Meryt I: The Reliefs, Inscriptions and Commentary by Geoffrey Thorndike Martin.
Maya was one of the most important officials of state under Tutankhamun. The holder of many titles in the administration, the chief of which was overseer of the treasury, he was also responsible for the security of the royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings. Maya and his wife Meryt erected a magnificent tomb at Saqqara, the necropolis of the capital city, Memphis. Wrecked in antiquity by tomb robbers, much remained nevertheless to be recorded by the EES-Leiden mission, which located the tomb in 1986. The present volume by Geoffrey T Martin provides a full record of the architecture, scenes and texts in the superstructure, as well as the unique painted substructure reliefs of the monument, detailed indexes, and an overview of the life of the tomb-owners.
The EES is offering this volume to EES members and Friends of Saqqara Foundation at the excellent half-price offer of £40.00. Please click this link to be taken to the EES Online Shop where you can purchase this deluxe hardback volume.
