    Much of what we know about Ancient Egypt comes from material found in tombs. The paintings from the tomb of Nebamun are so fine that their painter has been called 'the Michelangelo of antiquity'. The paintings contain a wealth of detail aboutEgyptian life and are often used as evidence for everyday activities in Ancient Egypt. They were probably meant to depict all the good things that Nebamun would continue to enjoy in the afterlife. Nebamun lived in Egypt nearly 3,500 years ago, around thesame time as Tutankhamun. He was an official who worked for the king, and he built a wonderful tomb-chapel filled with colourful paintings of himself and his family and his servants in various scenes: throwing a splendid banquet, counting their herdsof geese and cattle, making offerings to the gods, enjoying their garden, and hunting in the marshes with their cat!
