This gallery features early New Kingdom (1550–1450 B.C.) burial objects excavated—first by Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter, then by the Museum—in the so-called Asasif, a cemetery east of the temple of Hatshepsut on the west bank opposite present-day Luxor. They provide insights into the arts and crafts of the time when Egypt emerged from the struggles against the Hyksos and established the basis of its New Kingdom empire.
