Objective: This award is the second phase in a project to protect and restore the subterranean tomb of Senwosret III in Abydos and help prepare it for visitors. Along with the construction of a protective superstructure and associated restoration work, the project will begin site cleaning and surface improvement activities in order to return the site to something approaching its ancient appearance. This will be followed by work on the adjacent desert road with the planned dedicated parking area in 2016.
