Aswan Nobles tombs

The Tombs of the Nobles are situated near the West Bank of Aswan at the northern edge of Elephantine Island. They are of significant ‎importance as they give us the chance to know about the history of this section of ‎Egypt during the Old and the Middle Kingdom

The British archeologist Lord Greenville discovered the Tombs of the Nobles between 1885 and 1886 and was the first scientist to explore this important ‎historical site.
The Tombs of the Nobles located in Aswan are also called the tombs of Qubat El ‎Hawa and this historical site, although it is among the less visited monuments in ‎Upper Egypt, has some wonderful ancient art and noteworthy ‎importance of the Middle and the Old Kingdoms. ‎The wall paintings inside the Tombs of the Nobles are wonderfully alive and they ‎display the daily life activities of the ancient Egyptians in a magnificent masterpiece ‎of art. ‎
