|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.
