City Of The Dead

The following video was produced by David Myers, a photographer who lives in Maryland.  The City of the Dead is a four mile long cemetery that extends from the northern to southern part of Cairo and is an area of tombs and mausoleums where people live and works amongst the dead. Its foundation dates back to the Arab conquest of Egypt in 642 AD, and has grown with time until it reached the equivalent of a fully functioning residential suburb of Cairo.
