Serabit el-Khadim is a major archaeological site in the
Sinai of Egypt where a temple of Hathor was constructed near copper mines that were
operated during the Middle Kingdom
(DYN 12 = 1983 - 1795 BC) and New Kingdom
(DYN 18 through 20 = 1550 - 1075 BC) periods of Egyptian history.
The Egyptian Antiquity Authority has developed pathways and signs at the site,
but it is difficult to reach. The photographs at the website were taken by Ellen Stern in
2000; the slides were converted to digital images and the website was created by Professor
Michael Fuller. The rock art photographed by Ellen is highly patinated; Professor Fuller
has intentionally exaggerated the contrast in these webimages to make the designs more visible.
