Forgotten Treasures: Tausret as Seen in Her Monuments

Show Summary Details


This chapter looks at the scattered and sometimes enigmatic artifacts that have survived from the reign of Tausret—ranging from small items of jewelry found in the Valley of the Kings to larger two- and three-dimensional representations of the queen. Together, these artifacts and representations provide images of Tausret, or other clues, which may be analyzed in terms of their historical context or how they portray the queen and what this portrayal may tell us of the way she chose to be depicted.

Keywords: artifacts; Valley of the Kings; queen; female pharaohs; ancient Egypt
