Beni Hassan Art and daily life in an Egyptian Province
تاريخ الاصدار
اسم المؤلف
نبذه تعريفية

This book was written to explain and describe in detail the tombs at Beni Hassan. It is useful for scholars, tour guides, and students of Egyptology. 

The text wonderfully describes the scenes on the walls and gives great and interesting interpretations of heir functions and also offers references and comparable parallels, which are of great benefit to all. The tombs of Beni Hassan are among the most important Middle Kingdom tombs in Egypt in 1968. 

The wall scenesin these tombs are amazing: they depict scenes of warfare that lead some scholars to theorize that the events portrayed on the walls occurred during the troubled time of the First Intermediate Period.
