Stop At: Valley of the Artisans (Deir el-Medina), Deir el-Medina, Luxor Egypt
Deir el-Medina is an ancient Egyptian village which was home to the artisans who worked on the tombs in the Valley of the Kings during the 18th to 20th dynasties of the New Kingdom of Egypt. The village may have been built apart from the wider population in order to preserve secrecy in view of sensitive nature of the work carried out in the tombs. The village contains about sixty eight houses, with one main street in the middle. As well as the houses the workers built tombs for their own use including small rock-cut chapels and substructures adorned with small pyramids, these are decorated with scenes of daily life.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Stop At: Ramesseum (Mortuary Temple of Ramses II), West Bank, Luxor Egypt
Ramesseum, the magnificent mortuary temple of pharaoh Rameses II, also known as Rameses the Great. The mortuary temple was a place of worship dedicated to pharaoh, god on earth, where his memory would have been kept alive after his death. Surviving records indicate that work on the project began shortly after the start of his reign and continued for 20 years. Rameses had the pylons and outer wall of his temple inscribed with famous battle scenes including the famous Battle of Kadesh depicted on the walls of the great pylon. Near the western stairs is part of the Colossus of Ramses II, the Ozymandias of Shelley’s poem, lying somewhat forlornly on the ground, where it once stood 17.5m tall. The head of another granite statue of Ramses II, one of a pair, lies in the second court. Twenty-nine of the original 48 columns of the great hypostyle hall are still standing. In the smaller hall behind it, the roof, which features astronomical hieroglyphs, is still in place. Some of the wall carvings, including one showing the pharaoh’s name being inscribed on a leaf, are finely done.
