Something Is Moving Under The Sand

As it is one of the largest archaeological sites in Egypt and a place with extraordinary emotional influence, so far, when things seem to be changing, saara has not been lucky enough to enter people’s imagination, such as Giza, with three symbolic pyramids and the Sphinx, or Luxor, Its cemeteries (especially the valley of the kings) and temples (especially the temples of Luxor and Kanak). It’s part of the tour route, although it’s a relatively minor destination, given its amazing wealth (16 hectares of wonder), and many people think it’s a nasty price to pay. There’s a reason for that: it’s more like a desmanor, its main requirements (not to mention the tomb of the sacred bull of APIs del serapem in the North), the magnificent pyramid of Djoser, which is a strange sight for ordinary tourists (although you can visit it now), and the whole place Despite the efforts of Ian Mathieson and others, in many areas, the sand blown away by the hamasin wind and the roar from excavation seem to lack order and systematicness.

Saqqara usually has no great media icon; to understand ourselves, there are no great novels or movies. Saara doesn’t have Ramesses II, kiops, Nefertiti. Josel has never been explained by Yul Brynner or his queen Joan Collins, and the names of other great Pharaons related to Sakala, UNAS, Teti or PEPI I and II (all of which have text pyramids, different from Giza’s silence), do not resonate with the most popular tutensids or Ramesses. Saqqara did not have Tutankhamun either (though it must be remembered that Howard Carter might never have found the young king’s tomb if he had not been fired for slapping him on the spot). But he may have: the tombs and temples of great men associated with the place, the deified and sentimental architect Imhotep (not associated with the evil priest of the mummy), one of Egypt’s most charismatic figures, Josephine’s right hand, traditionally carved The stones that made the pyramids stand.

Saara’s architecture is full of labyrinth galleries, claustrophobic passageways and creepy wells. It also has the glorious tradition of real Indiana Jones, including Jean Philippe Raul, a French wise man who has worked for 70 years! There, he found the left foot of Joseph himself (or at least he believed) and Walter emery of England, and he really left the life of looking for Imhotep. The new excavations and discoveries, together with all the media influence they are gaining and waiting to see their exact scientific scope (huge in the case of ramadaan Hussein’s mummy studio), seem to be a turning point in the popularity of saara, and eventually in the future The general mentality of Egypt’s largest site. Something is moving under the sand.
