Drawing on archaeological, iconographic and documentary evidence, this is a scholarly reconstruction of the lives of men and women during the 450 years that comprised the New Kingdom. Meskell considers the role of communities and social groups, the importance of love and sex and the ways in which Egyptians understood the structure of their lives and their fate after death. The study, illustrated throughout, is arranged according to the frame of a person's life, from their birth within a social class to founding a house and marriage to death.
