The Two Brothers

 In 1907 a team led by the great Egyptologist Flinders Petrie discovered a small tomb hidden high in the cliffs above the Egyptian village of Rifeh. The undecorated rock-cut chamber contained the undisturbed burials of two men.

Although modest in size, the tomb was remarkable both for the quality of its funeral equipment and for the enduring mystery of its occupants, Khnum-Nakht and Nakht-Ankh, who soon became known as the "Two Brothers".

In this study of one of the most important undisturbed tombs from ancient Egypt, the author discusses the burial equipment and the mummified bodies of the two men, exploring what they can tell us about the lives and expectations of two ordinary yet remarkable individuals from Egypt's Middle Kingdom.
