Korte omschrijving 📚

The temples of Abu Simbel have fascinated travellers since they became known to the Western world in the 19th century. Since the 1960s when the rising waters created by the Aswan High Dam threatened to engulf the site, visitors' imaginations have been captivated by the elaborate international rescue operation. This text features: a brief, clear history of the ancient kingdom of Nubia and its relationship with Egypt; description and explanation of the High Dam project; extensive details of the salvage operation of the temples at Abu Simbel; a biography of Ramesses II; and descriptions of the artistic highlights in the temples.
