The Tomb of Tutankhamen Project is the GCI's most recent collaborative project with Egypt. Twenty years ago, institute staff worked with Egyptian colleagues and an international conservation team on the conservation of the wall paintings in the tomb of Queen Nefertari, wife of the powerful ruler Rameses II, in the Valley of the Queens. Other GCI collaborative work with Egyptian authorities has included the development of oxygen-free, nitrogen-filled display and storage cases for the Royal Mummies in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, an environmental monitoring study of the Great Sphinx at the Giza Plateau outside Cairo. Currently, the GCI is also collaborating with the SCA on the development and implementation of a conservation and management plan for the Valley of the Queens.
