“Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis” is no. 87 on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. This is the fifth video from a cruise on the Nile from Aswan to Luxor. The stops: Aswan – Kom Ombo – Edfu – Esna – Luxor. This video is from the Valley of the Kings outside Luxor.
Filming is not allowed inside the valley so the video contains some photographs of the outside and even inside some of the crypts. In addition comes scenes from Queen Hatshepsut’s mortuary temple complex not far from the Valley of the Kings, and from the statues called Colossi of Memnon standing guard on the the way from Luxor to the Necropolis.
Audio: “Ancient Sunrise” performed by Gerald Jay Markoe.
