Karnak Restoration Activities

Karnak Restoration Activities

The Egyptian Al-Ahram Weekly On-Line reports in an article by Nevine El-Aref entitled A perfectly sacred place that comprehensive conservation and reconstruction activities, based upon a plan worked out by "a team from the Centre Franco-Egyptian d'Etude des Temples de Karnak (CFEETK) - François Larché, director - along with their Egyptian colleagues", as stated by Sabri Abdel- Aziz, head of the Ancient Egyptian antiquities department, are being conducted at Karnak in Egypt by the Egyptian SCA (Supreme Council of Antiquities),

Not only is much restoration work going on at Karnak, but at the Valley of Kings, the SCA "is undertaking another site management project with a budget of $2.6 million offered as a grant by the Japanese government." Interesting is that a new high tech security system similar to the one at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo is also being installed at the tombs of the Valley of Kings.
