The Theban Necropolis Preservation Initiative was set up to ensure that the local community benefits financially and in other material ways from international efforts to preserve cultural heritage in the Valley of the Kings, and also that Egypt’s rich cultural heritage benefits from the knowledge and skills of local people. In order to achieve these aims, the TNPI has established a new 3D Scanning, Training, and Archiving Centre in Hassan Fathy’s Stoppelaere House at the entrance to the site, where a training course in recording and digital processing methods provides new skills and employment to local people.

You can find out more about the Centre, and about the restoration of Stoppelaere House, by following the links below.
