In a rare gesture of feminine ambition, Queen Hatshepsut (Hatshopsitu) assumed the throne of Egypt shortly after the death of her husband, Tuthmosis II, holding on to power for two decades until 1458 BC. As pharaoh, she would prepare a burial for herself in the Valley of the Kings; and this extraordinary spiral of a tomb was first cleared by Howard Carter for Theodore M. Davis between 1903 and 1904. Though officially emptied in antiquity, the tomb contained still many fragments of the burial, and two superb sarcophagi prepared both for the queen herself and for her father, Tuthmosis I. "The Tomb of Hatshopsitu", first published in 1906, is Davis's official account of this important work, with contributions on the historical background from Edouard Naville, and on the tomb's excavation and finds by Carter himself, who was also responsible for the plates.
