13 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Theban Mapping Project (TMP) was established in 1979 to prepare a detailed survey and archaeological database for the Theban Necropolis. As part of its work in the Valley of the Kings, it relocated KV 5. Clearing that tomb, the TMP discovered that what had been thought to be an unimportant, uninteresting, uninscribed pit tomb was actually the largest tomb ever found in Egypt. KV 5 is known to have 150 corridors and chambers on several levels and many more are likely to be discovered. The tomb is unique in size and plan and in its function as a family mausoleum for many of the sons of the pharaoh Rameses II." "This is the first technical report on KV5. It covers much of the work undertaken between 1988 and 1999. Copiously illustrated, this study is a reference for understanding one of the most important discoveries ever made in the Theban Necropolis."--Jacket

The lost tomb by Kent R Weeks( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world was astonished when American Egyptologist Kent Weeks discovered an elaborate tomb deep beneath the surface of Egypt's legendary Valley of the Kings. Soon he realized that this was the centuries-old burial site for the sons of Ramesses II. Previous to this discovery, no one had been certain where - or even if - this spectacular tomb existed. Now, in The Lost Tomb, Weeks takes readers into the largest and most complicated mausoleum yet found, unlocking age-old mysteries of Egyptian history. His insider's account of this significant archaeological find is paired with an unforgettable sense of adventure and awe." "Drawing on his own diaries, as well as those of his wife and foreman, Weeks brings to life the excitement and risks that he and his team encountered during the dig, including floods, scorpions, claustrophobia, and terrorist attacks. Photographs and sketches illustrate the crew's progress in uncovering KV 5 (as the tomb is called) and show the wealth of objects and decorations found in its more than one hundred fifty chambers and hallways. Weeks also provides a fascinating close-up of how an archaeologist works, revealing the tools and guesswork involved in finding such an elusive tomb - and the perhaps more complex task of evaluating the wall paintings and texts discovered within."--Jacket
