Before the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, the greatest find ever made in the Valley of the Kings was the 3,000-year-old tomb of Yuya (Iouiya) and Tjuyu (Touiyou), parents-in-law of King Amenophis III of the 18th Dynasty. The tomb contained their wonderfully preserved mummies, lying within magnificent coffins and surrounded by a gorgeous array of palace furniture and funerary equipment. This book containing the excavator s official reports on this important find was originally published in 1907-1908. Preface; by Theodore M.
