Religion at Deir el-Medina Souto, Iria

Description

Deir el-Medina is an archaeological site located on the West Bank of Thebes (current Luxor). It was inhabited by a community of workmen who built the tombs of the Valley of the Kings (Toivari-Viitala 2011). This workmen's village provides a wide range of sources for the study of daily life (McDowell 1999; Meskell 2002), economy, politics and personal beliefs (Weiss 2015) during the New Kingdom (from the reign of Thutmose I until that of Ramesses XI).
