Description:
Title: Medinet Habu: The Temple Proper, Part II. The Re Chapel, the Royal Mortuary Complex, and adjacent rooms with miscellaneous material from the Pylons, the Forecourts, and the first Hypostyle Hall.
Author: The Epigraphic Survey - The mission of the Epigraphic Survey, based at Chicago House in Luxor, Egypt since its founding in 1924, has been to produce photographs and precise line drawings of the inscriptions and relief scenes on major temples and tombs at Luxor for publication. More recently the Survey has expanded its program to include conservation, restoration, and site management. In addition to the field director, the professional staff of the Survey normally includes three to four epigraphers, four to five artists, two photographers, an architect, a librarian, several conservators, stonemasons, and IT consultants. The epigraphers and artists include both graduate students and post-doctoral scholars who have received training in all aspects of Egyptology. [Courtesy the University of Chicago]

Book Details: The Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu is an important New Kingdom period structure in the West Bank of Luxor in Egypt. Aside from its size and architectural and artistic importance, the temple is probably best known as the source of inscribed reliefs depicting the advent and defeat of the Sea Peoples during the reign of Ramesses III.
