The eighteen tombs in the Valley of the Kings that are open to visitors were surveyed for their physical condition. Data include maps, aerial photographs, interior photographs, and archival documents. Detailed information on the extent and types of damage was collected. The survey has resulted in protection plans against flooding and rainfall; an environmental monitoring system; a system of interpretive signs; an Arabic guidebook; a website (www.thebanmappingproject.com); systematic cleaning efforts; and wheelchair access to several of the tombs. Possible future projects for protecting the Valley and the individual tombs are discussed.
