During our travels, we tend to take a lot of photos of ancient structures and artefacts. Please note that these pictures are not in the public domain: if you wish to re-use them anywhere, please ask us first.
View across the ancient site of Kamiros on the island of Rhodes. The remains of the walls that you see here are probably just the stone sockles of the original houses.
A view of the Giza Plateau, with the Sphinx in the foreground and the pyramid of Khafre in the background. There was a lot of smog, which is why many of the details appear washed out.
A collection of rather sad looking horses wait in Cairo to be taken for a ride by tourists.
The reconstructed entrance to the funerary complex of Djoser (27th century BC) at Saqqara, near Cairo in Egypt.
Walking through the streets of Cairo, you encounter a lot of cats. It wouldn’t be Egypt if you didn’t, I suppose. This little black kitten caught my eye; I sometimes wonder what happened to it.
Stepping stones in a street in Pompeii. These raised stones ensured that pedestrians could safely cross the street without having to make their feet wet or dirty. The stones are spaced in such a way that wheeled vehicles could still pass easily.
