Nefertari was the favorite wife of Ramesses the Great, who reigned in Egypt from 1279 to 1213 B.C. The vibrantly-colored paintings that cover almost every available surface of her burial tomb are considered the best preserved in any ancient Egyptian burial site and the most eloquent and detailed description of an Egyptian’s journey to the afterlife. On Thursday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m., Ruth Shilling, who has led more than 50 tours of Egypt, will take us on a virtual tour of this breathtaking and deeply moving site. To register, e-mail us at
