Egypt: The Valley of the Dead

Several days could be spent experiencing and photographing ancient history at it’s finest in the Valley of the Dead. The ancient Egyptians spent many centuries building edifices in this area.  The Valley of the Dead includes the Valley of the Kings,  Valley of the Queens, Habou Temple, Colossus of Mennon and the Temple of Hatsheput.

The  underground burial tombs prevalent in the area contain the remains and possessions of not only ancient kings and queens, but also many ordinary citizens. King Tut probably is the most famous. His tomb and many others are open for viewing.
