One of the most interesting ways of learning about Ancient Egypt is to take a 6 day cruise down the Nile River. In part 1 of this 2 part course we begin in Luxor and explore the Karnak and Luxor temple complexes. We see how papyrus is made and visit the Valley of the Kings as well as Queen Hatshepsut’s Funerary Temple. Luxor is indeed a centre of interest for modern day explorers.
