Using evidence from the papyri and ostraca from New Kingdom Deir el-Medina, as well as the meagre evidence of archaeology this volume attempts to provide more exact definitions for the range of words used to describe the everyday dress of the workers. Each entry includes the frequency of the words' usage, and analysis of its contexts and meaning.
