Derived from Factum’s exhibition ‘Scanning Seti’ that toured the world in 2017, this book aims at changing our attitudes regarding the importance of the role of non-contact recording and the production of facsimiles to preservation. To achieve this, the story of the numerous damaging excavations and reproductions undergone by the Tomb of Seti I since its C19th discovery is recounted alongside a detailed and photographic exploration into the methods employed to restore it, and how these are key to the future of cultural heritage documentation.

It narrates the story of the sun’s nocturnal journey through the underworld, from its nightly setting in the west to its re-emergence at dawn in the east. This earliest found example hails from the Tomb of Thutmose III and was transcribed into English by Adam Lowe, with accompanying illustrations by Blanca Nieto.

Advance digital technologies for reverse engineering and modelling have long been used in industry .

This book describes the research and development that has gone into making this possible. Seti I was a Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt during the 19th dynasty. His tomb is the longest and the deepest in the Valley of the Kings and he was celebrated for his high regard in art and culture.
