Great Quiz. It is called High Dam in Egypt not Aswan Dam, so it would be right to accept it

There are many dams called High Dam, especially when they replace an earlier-built low dam. Aswan Low Dam was completed c.1902, and was replaced by the construction of Aswan High Dam which began in the early 1960s.
