We will take a tour of this small but exquisite 18th Dynasty tomb, with a chance to see all the remaining decorations. Along the way, we will find what is typical about this tomb for its location, date and owner’s status – and we will see what is different. This will lead to brief speculations about the economic workings of the time, the various personalities involved, and hopefully an appreciation of one man’s attempt at immortality. Theban Tomb TT255 is part of the Theban Necropolis, situated on the west bank of the Nile opposite Luxor.
