Hatshepsut (Part V): Monuments and the Jubilee.
From 1485-1477, regnal years 10-17 of Hatshepsut, the Kingdom of Egypt is in a flurry of building work. Monuments are going up all over Egypt, requiring the work of thousands.
These projects culminate in the year 16 sed-festival, Hatshepsut's grand jubilee: an anniversary....but of what?
