Travel evidence - Theban Necropolis

Way to deny me from taking photos in your tombs now I've finally bought a camera, Egypt!

That means some of these photos aren't mine, so apologies for their superior, professional quality. I'm sure the transition will be seamless. You'll have to trust that these are things I saw with my real, human eyes - eyes that didn't expect to see a mummified foetus today.

Valley of the Kings

The chilling tomb of Ramesses IV

The gone-wrong tomb of Ramesses III

The frantically-scribbled tomb of Thutmes III

Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut

Don't get too excited, it's 80% restoration

This doorway seemed important at the time

But no one cares about the rubbish 'tree'

Valley of the Queens

Mummified foetus in tomb of Amun-her-khepeshef. Alive for just six months, 3,000 years ago. Dwell on that!

Colossi of Memnon

Two dilapidated, weather-beaten old relics... and the statues. HA HA HA! I mean, Dave W, Kiara + Colossi of Memnon

No one seemed to know what this thing was. Any ideas?
