An Egyptian Mission working in Luxor has found kilns and a large fence made of mud brick dating to the Roman and Late Period. The team is part of the restoration work related to the restoration and unearthing of the Sphinx Avenue in Luxor.
The kilns showed to be circular in shape and made of mud brick with signs of use, probably for making pottery or faience. The fence was built to the west of the processional way of Khonsu Temple, being 30 meters long, 2.5 meters in height and 3 meters wide.
In addition, the team found a wall made of sandstone blocks. It is an extension to the protective wall on the east bank of the river Nile which protects from the changing flood levels. The wall extends from in front of Karnak Temple to the north up until Luxor Temple to the south, alongside the great processional road.
