Kitchen Tender being Rowed. Egyptian, ca. 1981–1975 B.C., from the Tomb of Meketre.

Many outings of Egyptian nobles culminated in a picnic. On the menu for Meketre’s boat trip were roasted fowl, dried beef, bread, beer, and some kind of soup. Meat and bread were carried on another model of a tender, now in Cairo. Here, the beer is prepared and the soup cooked. A blackened trough may have contained burning coal for roasting the fowl. A man tends a stove on which soup simmers. On either side, a woman grinds grain. Brewers inside the cabin are shaping bread loaves, then working them through sieves into large vats. One brewer stands in another vat, where he tramples the dates that provide the sugar for the fermentation of the beer. The oars of this boat are fixed to the sides; to avoid damaging the oars while the boats were transported and deposited in the model chamber, all oars of Meketre’s boats were secured in this manner.

The Tomb of Amunherkhepshef

The Egyptian prince was the son of Ramesses VI and Queen Nubkhesbed. Amunherkhepshef lived during the twentieth dynasty and buried in the reused sarcophagus of Twosret in the Valley of Kings. The Valley is the resting place constructed for Pharaohs and powerful nobels. It stands on the west bank of the Nile, opposite of Thebes and contains 63 tombs, of which the most notable is the tomb of Tutankhamun.
