Arnold, Dieter - The Temple of Mentuhotep at Deir el Bahari
One of the most important documentations of the Mentuhotep temple was made by Dieter Arnold et al. as a summary of all findings from several excavation campaigns summarized in a book and published in 1979. His abundantly illustrated complete documentation is available here as a digital facsimile.
These documents provide an invaluable basis for the rebuilding of the temple as a digital copy in the virtual world of Second Life, and we are very grateful to the The Metropolitan Museum of Art Libraries for the freely accessible publication of this treasure. 🙂
Naville, Edouard - The temple of Deir el Bahari

His abundantly illustrated complete documentation, published in several volumes, is available here as a digital facsimile.
These documents provide an invaluable basis for the rebuilding of the temple as a digital copy in the virtual world of Second Life, and we are very grateful to the University of Heidelberg for the freely accessible publication of this treasure. 🙂
