Graffiti in Qurna by Giovanni Battista Belzoni - Italian showman, engineer and explorer of Egyptian antiquities at the Ramesseum. Qurna is located a few miles outside Luxor and is built in the Valley of the Nobles, a major archeological site. The Egyptian authorities are demolishing Qurna and moving its inhabitants to nearby New Qurna to make way for more tourist friendly developments.
