Take a tour of Tomb 2 - Perhaps the oldest rock cut tomb in Egypt (more to follow soon!)


Volume 27 of Nekhen News (Fall 2015) contains an article by Joel Paulson about the excavation history, survey of the tomb and of the creation of a 3-D virtual model of this early tomb. Using over 180 photographs of the emptied tomb, he was able to create this virtual model of the tomb, which you can open from the link below.
