    DescriptionFour areas in Southern Egypt, around Lake Nasser, now contain ancient monuments that were reconstructed and moved from their original positions during the building of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s: Abu Simbel, New Amada, New Wadi al-Sebua and New Kalabsha. This guide provides an introduction to the history and culture of Nubia during the pharaonic period. It describes each monument in detail, highlighting its history, religion and art. Also included are a short bibliography and brief descriptions of the four temples that were transported and reconstructed abroad - the most notable now residing in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
