Back in 2016 I visited Egypt as part of a tour organised by Lucia Gahlin for the Friends of the Petrie Museum. On that trip we spent two days in Saqqara seeing all the monuments open to the public at that point. Click through the link below for my photos:
At that point the scaffolding was still on the Step Pyramid as it was being restored. You’ll see from the photos that I was quite fascinated by the juxtaposition of modern (yet old looking) scaffolding against the ancient pyramid.
