This program examines the tombs of Ipi the workman, and Kha the architect,
which illustrate the daily round of ancient Egyptian life.
Presented in this segment of the eight-part series is art as a communal
activity in ancient Egypt; the tools, furniture, clothing, kitchen utensils,
and foods of Ipi and Kha, and the money with which they were paid; how the
Egyptians divided the person into body, soul, and image; the Colossi of
Memnon and King Amen Htep's deed giving the temple to the god; the tomb of
Tutmose III and what is hieroglyphs and paintings mean.
Viewers learn why Ramose the scribe came to the craftsmen's village, and
about the records kept by Kenherkopefshef.
