Virtual tour of the treasures of Egypt


Egypt, like most countries, is being hit hard by the coronavirus epidemic that is sweeping the planet. Its monuments remain closed, waiting for better times. But the Egyptian authorities, in collaboration with the foreign archaeological missions have devised a way to entertain the millions of lovers of Pharaonic culture during this season of confinement: virtual tours of the country's various monuments.

The first of these "capsules" of Egyptian culture is a journey through the tomb of Menna (TT69), in Luxor, 600 kilometers south of Cairo. Menna was a high-ranking Egyptian official who, among other things, held the title of Supervisor of the Fields of Amun during the 18th Dynasty (1539-1292 BC), probably under the reigns of Thutmose IV and Amenhotep III.
