Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis concerns the cultural landscape in the Theban area during the Middle Kingdom, under the reign of Montuhotep III. What part he played in the connection of the Theban landscape was studied. The outlook point was the only temple that Montuhotep III founded in the Theban area, looking out over contemporary sites. The visibility in the Theban area during the early Middle Kingdom were studied by using Geographic Information System and interpreted by using phenome-nology. The viewshed analysis showed that three out of six contempo-rary sites were visible from Thoth Hill. This information was then used to interpret the choice of location.
