Description

Theban Tomb 32, excavated between 1983 and 2006 by the mission of the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest was constructed for Djehutymes, a high-ranking official in the reign of Ramesses II. Consisting of three large forecourts, a mud-brick pyramid and fifteen rooms in the tomb interior, TT 32 gives a sophisticated and in some ways unique example of Ramesside tomb architecture. This volume offers a detailed analysis of the finds dating from the earliest occupation of the site to the Twenty-sixth Dynasty, including the objects from the Eighteenth Dynasty shaft tombs and two hypogeum tombs of the late Third Intermediate Period discovered at the base of el-Khokha hillock.
