Chapter Summary

The Theban Mapping Project (TMP) has been working in the Valley of the Kings (KV) since 1979. During that time, it has prepared several such reports. It is helping to manage tourists in the valley, working with the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) to design interpretive signs at each tomb entrance. The Valley of the Kings has been a popular site with Egyptologists and archaeologists since the mid-nineteenth century. Many expeditions have worked here and continue to do so. For the past six years, the TMP has devoted considerable time to preparing such reports and photographic surveys of KV tombs. The main purpose of our photographic surveys was to provide a record of existing tomb conditions, especially of decorated walls, and the TMP compiled historical images as well, to give the survey historical depth so that we could track changing conditions over time.
