The tomb of an 18th-dynasty field scribe in the Theban Necropolis. Menna lived during Egypt’s New Kingdom, over 3,000 years ago when Amenhotep III was pharaoh. As part of the Egyptian elite, Menna and his family held important positions within the state and temple administration and must have enjoyed a comfortable life in Egypt’s upper class society.
Documented and conserved by the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE), led by Melinda Hartwig from Georgia State University. The project was funded by United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
