Presentation of some evidence from Deir el-Medîna texts for the materials used in the preparation of the Pharaoh's tomb and those of members of the royal family. The ostraca are discussed, with translation and commentary, one housed in the Turin Museum, the other, consisting of two halves, divided between the British Museum and the Petrie Museum. The texts list various types of wooden beams and planks, ropes, and what seem to be contraptions used for the work in the tombs.
