A gem of a tomb

This small tomb was cut and decorated for the craftsman Senedjem, who lived in the workmen's village. The entrance is steep but the interior is stunning.

A tomb ofone of the wealthiest men in the village, a chief workman in the Valley of the Kings. Brilliant color, very tastefully planned and executed.

If you are visiting Deir el-Medina, this tomb should be definitely on your list! One of the most well-preserved decorations and it is quite spacious compared to the others. When you are at Deir el-Medina, the local "guides" will suggest you in which sequence visit the tombs. They usually leave this one at the end :)

This tomb is included with your ticket to Deir el-Medina. Not as large, elaborate, ir carved as the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, but the color is amazingly vibrant. Photos are not allowed inside the tomb, but if you buy the photo DVD from the vendor in the Valley of the Kings, it includes 20 photos of this... More

Small tomb in the Workers Village of Deir el Medina but it is worth it. It comes with you ticket to visit the site so take advantage of it when you get it. It is a little difficult to get to if you have back or leg problems because they are steep stairs with low ceilings. I am over six... More

Notable scenes on the wall are: 1. Right Wall - The solar cat slashing the Apophis... More

If you decide to pay a visit to the Valley of the Artisans and lacks a little time, you should visit the tomb of Sennedjem. He was a foreman of the artists who decorated the many royal tombes during the New Kingdom. Your whole life you will remember the vivid colours used in the different scenes depicting life in the...

It is very interesting to se how the finer citizens were buried in ancient Egypt. Wonderful paintings on the walls of the tombs.

This actually beat some of the tombs in VOK, the detail and colour was just fantastic. I would definitely go to these tombs and also see the village which is fascinating.
