The shrine and the objects it contained are introduced in Chapter 1. Chapter 2 contains detailed descriptions of the relief and translations of the texts, whilst Chapter 3 is a critical consideration of interpretations of the decoration proposed in earlier studies by Bosse-Griffiths, Hari and Westendorf, and presents the author's hypothesis that the shrine was intended to 'document Ankhesenamun's ideological role as Tutankhamun's queen'. The style and dating of the shrine are the subject of Chapter 4.
The illustrations include Harry Burton's original photographs (now in the Archive of the Griffith Institute, Oxford), supplemented by recent detailed photographs of the individual scenes, as well as diagrams and autographed copies of the texts.
