Sheikh abd el-Qurna from the south

This movie was made on a ridge at the south of the hill of Sheikh abd el-Qurna. Looking to the left (west) from the starting point you can see TT99 (identifiable by the excavation tripod!), while to the east is the village, and then the Ramesseum. To the south, a bit in shadow, is the workmen's village of Deir el-Medina. This movie was made in January 1998, from 18 colour prints.
