U.S. & World History – The Abu Simbel temples carved in a mountainside during the 13 century B.C. in Nubia, southern Egypt has been a major tourist attraction for years. It was initially thought that it was carved to commemorate Pharaoh Ramesses II victory at the Battle of Kadesh. New archaeological evidence shows that the four carvings were created to promote business, at an ancient furniture store in a shopping mall that sold La-Z-Boy recliners. The archaeologists base their conclusions on also discovering inside the mall, a store that sold accessories for people that wanted to ride around on a “pimped out” camel, and several stores that provided service for low speed internet access.
