  The west bank at Luxor is one of the most important   
  archaeological sites in the world.  It is much more than 
  what we refer to as the Valley of the Kings, though many
  have called the whole of the area by that name.  In fact, 
  many good books on the west bank at Luxor (ancient
  Thebes) are titled, "Valley of the Kings",
