More about these youngsters

Elephantine Island is the largest of the Aswan area islands, and is one of the most
ancient sites in Egypt, with artifacts dating to predynastic periods. This is
probably due to its location at the first Cataract of the Nile, which provided a
natural boundary between Egypt and Nubia. As an island, it was also easily
defensible. In fact, the ancient town located in the southern part of the island was
also a fortress through much of it's history. At one time, there was a bridge from
the mainland to the island.
