Despite the collapse of the ceiling that destroyed much of the Second Pillared Hall of the Tomb of Karakhamun, the recovery of thousands of fragments has allowed over 90 per cent of the texts used to be identified. The Book of the Dead appears extensively in this tomb, and this chapter looks at the placement and choice of the texts and spells. It also considers peculiarities and possible alterations, their current condition, and the level artisanship used to inscribe them. The excavation of this tomb makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of the Book of Dead in the Twenty-fifth Dynasty.
