Where The Heck is it? March, 2017

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

During the 19th Dynasty there was no better known business in all of Egypt than "Happy Hemiunu's Haberdashery," purveyor of fine loincloths, lovely gowns, superior crowns and headdresses, and the like, but one night the place burned to the ground and was never rebuild, alas. What today's tourist visits is the excavated famous 'Bargain Basement' and 'Sandal Department,' plus some deeper storerooms.

However, there is some controversy about this interpretation.

Do you think you know:

1. What this structure is and what it's name might be?

2. If not the 19th Dynasty, when do you think it was built?

Bring your answers to the March meeting and if you are correct, you may win prizes!
