Tomb of Menna in the Theban Necropolis

  • American Research Center in Egypt, al-Qarna, Egypt, online
Some 3,000 years ago, on the west bank of the Nile in al-Qarna, Egypt, this relatively modest tomb was built and decorated for a man named Menna. Rediscovered in 1886, it can now be experienced in this well-produced 3D, immersive virtual tour sponsored by the American Research Center in Egypt, which also sponsored the tomb’s preservation as well as scholarship about it. The virtual tour is smooth and intuitive, featuring crisp images of elaborately patterned ceilings of colors that appear remarkably bright.
