Ancient Egyptian site
The Princes's Tombs date mainly from the Old Kingdom which provide important details of the lives of officials at this time — including the tomb of Harkhuf. There are a few later tombs, from the Middle Kingdom and New Kingdom.
The hill is also the site of a Coptic monastery and some of the tombs were reused as a Coptic church.
