Caption: Landsat photograph of the River Nile as it snakes past Luxor (grey area on right bank, one third of the way up the image). The major features are the dense bands of cultivation which cling to the banks of the river through a highly-developed irrigation system, assisted by the Aswan Dam which curbed the spring floods. The loop in the centre of the river contains the Valley of the Kings. But drifting sands have concealed many of the structures of Ancient Egypt.
