Conservation and Management of the Tomb of Tutankhamen

The Getty Conservation Institute has entered into a five-year partnership with Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) to collaborate on a project for the conservation and management of the tomb of Tutankhamen (KV62). Located in the Valley of the Kings, within the World Heritage Site of Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis, the tomb of Tutankhamen is perhaps the most famous of Egypt’s pharaonic tombs. In November 1922, when British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the treasure-filled tomb, the short-lived eighteenth-dynasty pharaoh attained instant and lasting fame. Though KV62 is the smallest of the royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings, it was found with its spectacular funerary contents virtually intact and was scientifically excavated over a ten-year period, thus it is of great historic and cultural value.

Vinte e seis séculos de história cruzam-se na Cripta Arqueológica do Castelo de Alcácer do Sal.

O subterrâneo escavado no solo e no antigo Convento de Aracaeli oferece uma verdadeira viagem no tempo, numa atmosfera única, onde vestígios da Idade do Ferro convivem no mesmo espaço com estruturas romanas, islâmicas e medievais com intervalos intemporais entre si de mais de 2500 anos.
