Tombs of the Nobles

Highly recommended
Less famous than the two neighbouring royal valleys - despite having been better protected from pillaging - these 400 tombs of high-level officials from Thebes have outstanding New Kingdom decoration: brightly coloured farming scenes and reliefs of everyday life adorn the tombs of the scribes Nakht (no 52) and Menna (no 69). Funerary illustrations relating to the status of the deceased adorn the tombs of the governors of Thebes, Rekhmire (no 100), Sennefer (no 57) and Ramose (no 55). The sepulchre of the royal scribe Khaemhat (no 57) is one of the few sculpted tombs.
