Footnotes

  • The remote, arid Valley of the Kings in the hills on the west bank of the Nile contains the tombs of most of the Pharaohs from the late 16th to the mid-11th Centuries B.C. The tombs were hewn far into the cliffs, with passages, stairways, pillared halls and burial chambers carved and painted with mythological scenes and texts. Bridgman took this view on an excursion during his outward journey. The scene is from a viewpoint on a track high above the valley, looking north-east towards the distant plain, with the Nile and the east bank just visible on the horizon.
