Summary

This week you learnt that we know very little about Nebamun himself, although the fragments of the wall paintings from his tomb are well known. He must, however, have been wealthy to have undertaken such a project as a tomb-chapel. You then explored the purpose and nature of tomb-chapels in general, before considering how the Egyptian conception of the afterlife was closely modelled on the desires and experiences of life.
