Working in the Theban Necropolis - a vast conglomerate of ancient tombs and mortuary temples that faced the ancient Egyptian city Thebes (modern Luxor) - archaeologists have uncovered an ancient tomb on the west bank of the Nile, made in the likeness of the the mythical Tomb of Osiris.
Maiherperi was an Ancient Egyptian noble of Nubian origin buried in the Valley of the Kings, in tomb KV36. He probably lived during the rule of Thutmose IV, and received the honour of a burial in the Valley of the Kings, the royal necropolis. His name can be translated as Lion of the Battlefield,. Amongst his titles were Child of the Nursery and Fan-bearer on the Right Side of the King. There is speculation that the first title signified that he grew up in the royal nursery as a prince of a vassal territory, or perhaps was the son of a lesser wife or concubine of the pharaoh. He was among the first during the New Kingdom to hold the second title, and was literally true in that he was by the pharaoh's side, likely as an advisor or bodyguard. This same title was also used to denote the Viceroys of Kush later in the New Kingdom

Jill Alexander Essbaum's poetry has been compared to "a cross between Dorothy Parker and a lap dance" and "John Donne in sexy underwear." Her poems are equal parts religion, rhythm, and ribaldry. Not a formalist, she prefers the moniker of “formal-ish poet,” or more specifically, a “rhymist.” A graduate of the universities of Houston and Texas both (BA and MA, respectively), Jill was halfway through a Master of Arts in Religion at the Episcopal Seminary of the Southwest when her first book Heaven won the 1999 Bakeless Prize and was published by University Press of New England. Of Heaven, Bakeless judge Agha Shahid Ali wrote: "Only the best writers put us right at the site of myth and thus assert, for us, our right to be part of the beginning and end of any world, any heaven. That Jill Alexander Essbaum does it so quietly, so delicately, and puts herself, and us, at the center of Heaven itself leads me only to envy. For how else can one convincingly transcend the domestic? There is simply no self-congratulation in these poems. Just a graceful, magical way of taking oneself - and one's bare uncertainties - for granted." In 2003, Jill was a recipient of an NEA literature grant during which time she wrote the collection of erotic sonnets, Oh Forbidden (Pecan Grove Press). Her poems have appeared in journals both religious and secular, both print and on-line, both famously well-known and thoroughly obscure including The Christian Century, Poetry, Rhino, Coconut, No Tell Motel, The Texas Observer, WOMB, Cranky, The National Poetry Review, Image, 42opus, and many others. She has taught at Concordia University in Austin, and the University of Texas. Currently she is preparing for the publication of a fourth book, Necropolis, (neoNuma Arts, Spring 2008), and working on a new manuscript. Jill is a member of First English Lutheran church in Austin, Texas. If you would like to book her for a reading or a lecture, please contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. She
