This exhibition catalogue is free and downloadable at the link above (if it had been less focused on the 3-6th dynasties, I’d have used it for a textbook; grab it even if you’re not choosing this option). Pick one of the chapters concerning objects: statues/sculpture, reliefs, furniture, stone vessels. Also consult relevant objects in the catalogue section. Consider in association what you’ve learned in class.

Links to entry for the tomb reconstruction and the objects it contained:https://www.metmuseum.org/search- results#!/search?searchFacet=All%20Results&q=Perneb&orderByCountDesc=true&page=1 (there’s not an easy way to filter out objects with photos, or even just the artifacts unfortunately). How does all this material augment your understanding of the tomb in its original context?
