Comment: This is an excellent site with a lot of information both about Egyptian history
and the current efforts to preserve these monuments. I spent a lot of time
reviewing the site, and worked my way through "Tombs of the Nobles" by taking
both the quick tour and linking to the more detailed information avaiable. This
site's content is detailed, thorough, and specific. It offers viewers a lens
into the work of archaeologists that are laboring to preserve the monuments and
information that has been learned by their efforts. The visuals of the sites,
the art, and architecture assists the viewer in understadning the material.

This site has excellent potential for furthering student learning and has
realistic applications as a teaching tool. The information and authorship of
the site brings history to life.

In addition, the materials accessible on this site are easily navigable with
simple graphics for direction.

Technical Remarks:

This site was easily navigable, as previously mentioned, with options that allow
the user to choose the depth of material they wish to encounter. The graphics
are simple and straightforward. All links are working and manageable by even
the most inexperienced of users.
