public_access_description
Thebes, the city of the god Amon, was the capital of Egypt during the period of the Middle and New Kingdoms. With the temples and palaces at Karnak and Luxor, and the necropolises of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens, Thebes is a striking testimony to Egyptian civilisation at its height. This length of linen, originally in red, blue and brown with a fringe at one end, was discovered by Howard Carter (1874-1939) in a tomb in the Sheikh Abd el-Qurna, Western Thebes dating to the XVIII Dynasty.
