May 2013 Where The Heck Is It?
Clues for this month…
In an effort to stimulate tourism, the new minister of antiquities instituted a building plan for underground hotels at famous historical sites. This photo shows the first nearly completed example, near the Great Pyramids at Giza, which had to be abandoned. A market survey determined that tourists didn’t like the idea of hotel rooms 50 feet underground.
Or do you have another interpretation? If so…
1. What do you think the structure in the picture represents and who do you think built it?
2. What is the ancient name for the flat area in the background?
Bring your answers to the May ARCE meeting where you can win prizes by answering these questions.
