Mrs. Naunakhte & Family

The Women of Ramesside Deir al-Medina Koenraad Donker van Heel

A unique view into the lives of ordinary women in ancient Egypt

The so-called Will of Naunakhte (1154 BCE) has become rightly famous in Egyptology. So where did she come from and what really happened to her eight surviving children, four of whom were daughters? By carefully studying the documents mentioning members of the family and including all the material mentioning the women of the New Kingdom village of Deir al-Medina and other sources, the author once again puts to the forefront the remarkable role played by ordinary women in ancient Egypt.
