The Tale of Sinuhe

Professor Richard Parkinson's blog for the British Museum discusses his current work in connection to a new commentary on the famous ancient Egyptian poem, The Tale of Sinuhe. This narrative about an official’s troubled life-story was written in about 1850 BC and survives in many manuscripts, including one in a collection of texts that was buried in a tomb at Luxor in around 1680 BC, and is now known as the Ramesseum papyri.
