Many different works were used in the
construction of The Theban Royal Mummy Project site. In order to make
this site a useful online research tool, I have extensively documented my
sources by providing bibliographies for every entry. All written data deriving
from the work of other researchers receives explicit acknowledgement, either in
the body of the text, or in the Source Bibliography which appears at the
end of the text.
My primary sources for images are the classic works of
Maspero, Daressy and Smith, which (I believe) are now in the public domain.
However, several impediments stood in my way when using these works: (i.) I
obtained most them via interlibrary loan, and only had a very limited
time to use them; (ii.) one of the books had water damage, and some of the
prints were badly stained and faded; and (iii.) all of the books were in a
fragile condition and would have been damaged had I attempted to scan all of the
plates. Therefore, I have also used some ancillary images from other works, and have clearly noted
this on the pages which use such images. In way of compensation, I provide links
below to book sources where some of the books used by this site may be purchased.
The Theban Royal Mummy Project is a completely
non-profit enterprise (I'm doing this research as a labor of love) which
collates and presents data on Theban royal mummies for free educational and research
purposes only. It is in no way intended to provide a substitute for the written
work of any professional Egyptologist, living or otherwise. I do sincerely hope
that it will encourage an enthusiasm for Egyptology, and, toward this end, I
highly recommend the following books:
