Akhenaten City PLC
The remains of the city of Pharoah Akhenaten lie as little more than rubble in an area of Egypt largely inaccessible to visitors. A British company, 'Akhenaten City PLC', has spent over two years working on a project to reconstruct the entire central area of the city as a tourist attraction. This will be the largest historical reconstruction of its kind ever undertaken and once completed will give the public the opportunity to see exactly what an ancient Egyptian City looked like when it was in its full glory. They say it isn't going to be a theme park. Time will tell.
