The Valley of the Necropolis Workers:

The valley of the Necropolis workers is located far away from Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens and Valley of the Nobles.  The artisans of the New Kingdom  consisted of stone workers, engravers, quarrymen and artists.  They lived in a village of which today remains can be seen.

Because of their great skill the workers built their own personal tombs which were always beautifully decorated with paintings on the walls and ceilings.  One such tomb is that of Sennedjem where paintings depict husband and wife worshiping the gods of the After-life.
