Finding many intact burials of court officials with the original elaborate furniture of the tomb in their original positions, Garstang was able to undertake a meticulous description of all details of the interments including funeral rites and emblems, clothing and adornment of the person, and arts and crafts used in the burial. The work is particularly notable for the light it throws on the daily lives and deaths of men and women of the middle classes in ancient Egypt.
