New blockyard at Luxor Temple

Luxor News Blog (Jane Akshar)

With lots of photos.

Readers will remember Ray Johnson speaking about this in his lecture so today I went and visited.

Firstly you have to get an idea of this blockyard, it is huge, big and then big. This is a view taken from the mosque and you can see how much there is there. It is all arranged on mastabas (local name for brick benches).

When you get to the end of the temple exit on the north side and there is a walkway with a chain link fence. Just follow it.

Everything is well labeled and stretches from Middle Kingdom to Islam.
