Flight 20130414 - Finding El-Mushaggar

We took pictures of this village because there were old reports it had once had archaeological remains. All we could see was this roofless relatively modern building in the middle of the current cemetery. But if you zoom in on the doorway you see it consists of two reused ancient columns with some column stumps in the wall nearby.
Close up of the re-used columns.

  1. The voussoirs above the doorway look a bit Roman too. Reminiscent of the arch in Corbridge church (and we all know where that came from).
