Images of Deir el-Medina past & present

Deir el-Medina is one of the best preserved ancient settlements in the whole 
of Egypt. It is situated in a small secluded valley in the shadow of the 
Theban hills, on the west bank of the Nile, across from modern-day Luxor   
in Upper Egypt. The location is unique for its unrivalled wealth of 
archaeological, artistic and textual evidence that has survived and from which 
we can reconstruct many aspects of the daily lives of its ancient inhabitants.
These web pages document the past and the present of this, in my opinion, 
prettiest archaeological site in the world, based on our own photographic 
material, that we and our colleagues and friends have shot during our visits to 
    Egypt and to various museums that house objects originating from            
Deir el-Medina.
