The Preservation and Conservation of the Archaeological Resources of Tell El-Hibeh, Beni Suef Governorate
Director: Robert Yohe, California State University


The project will focus on conservation and preservation issues including burial and tomb stabilization and protection, the stabilization of sinkholes (particularly requested by the local inspectorate) and crumbling brick structures on top of the tell, and the documentation, assessment, salvage and conservation of one of the vast necropolis areas north of the tell.

Graduate student training also is an integral part of this fieldwork. Each of these activities will not only preserve significant components of this important site, but also will further add to knowledge about this little-studied site and region of Middle Egypt.
