Chapter Summary

The mortuary temple of the king at Medinet Habu, with its abundance of well-preserved relief, is the focus of this chapter. The primary goals of the chapter are: 1) to create a total digital color photographic record of Medinet Habu, of which approximately 90% is completed; 2) to develop a relational database to track all Medinet Habu scene attributes (and those of comparative data sets); 3) through advanced statistical analyses, to discover pairs and/or triads of correlated attributes of royal regalia; and 4) to provide a methodology which would be valuable for similar studies by others in the future. A concentration of regalia elements connected with the physical and military prowess of the king under Ramses III might have served a similar purpose in exemplifying the ideal pharaoh for a dangerous and chaotic time.

Keywords: Egyptian royal costume; Medinet Habu; quantifying Regalia; Ramses III
