The nearest town was called Thebes. Today it goes by the name Luxor.
You can also see that near the Valley was a village called the Place of Truth. The craftsmen who built the tombs lived there. They kept detailed records of their daily lives, which can be read today. The remains of the village are still in existence. Locals call it Dier el Medina.
