Deir el-Medina (Valley of the Artisans) Tours and Activities

star-5
136 Reviews

Creating the Valley of the Kings was no simple undertaking: a small army of builders, engineers, engravers and other workers was required to carve the dozens of tombs out of sheer rock over the centuries.

Naturally they all had to be housed somewhere, ideally not too far away. But it was only with the discovery of Deir el-Medina (Valley of the Artisans), around the time of the opening of Tutankhamun’s tomb, that we learnt more about their living conditions.

The outlines of the “workmen’s village” are still clearly visible, and extant reliefs offer a fascinating portrait of everyday life. All of this makes Deir el-Medina a pleasant change after countless monuments glorifying the pharaohs and their morbid fixation on the afterlife.
