Conservation of an Amun Temple in the Sudan
Title: Conservation of an Amun Temple in the Sudan
Abstract: Excavation of a 2000-year old Amun temple at Dangeil began in 2000 under the directorship of Drs Salah Mohamed Ahmed and Julie R. Anderson of the National Corporation for Antiquities and Museums (NCAM), Sudan and the British Museum, UK, respectively. Dangeil is located south of the 5th Nile cataract in Sudan. In 2007, it was decided to assess and explore the options available for long term site preservation. In 2008, a preliminary visit was organised to initiate a number of trials on various aspects of the architectural fabric of the site. The materials used in the temple’s construction include mud brick, fired brick, lime plaster and sandstone. During the 2009 field season, the previous year’s tests were evaluated and other areas of the site were selected for further trials.
