lost tombs
The work, which was submitted as a doctoral dissertation at the University of Cambridge, investigates the problem of unprovenanced fragments of tomb paintings in museums and other collections and the whereabouts of many tombs in the Theban necropolis whose location is no longer known. Records and drawings by early travellers to Egypt enable a partial reconstruction of the wall-decoration of these tombs.
