The tombs found in the Valley of the Kings (which belong to the UNESCO World Heritage) have only in part been documented and published. In addition, large areas of the valley have remained unexplored – a fact that is of concern, due to the impact of natural and human influences currently present. In the face of these factors, our objective has become to secure the valuable information these tombs have to offer and to make it available to future researchers and to the public at large. The University of Basel Kings’ Valley Project has especially dedicated itself to the preservation and documentation of these endangered historical tomb structures and has initiated a site management programme to ensure the protection of the tombs and their surroundings. Data will be migrated to the DaSCH.
