Avenue of Rams
This is another article on the fast paced excavation of the ancient avenue of rams with everything in its path being demolished for the peoples own good, that is according to the governor of Luxor. The evicted residents are being offered money or another flat for their demolished homes.
The precedents is not good for the residents of Luxor who need only to look at the people evicted from Gurna a couple of years ago many of who are less than happy and facing problems receiving water and electricity in their new government given homes.
There is also talk that the excavation of the avenue is turning up mostly battered and unrecognizable pieces of statuary (rams).
