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.
