Excavations

Current Excavations:

Dr. Geoff Emberling’s team have begun work to re-locate elements of the town site. Dr. Rachael Dann’s team are investigating areas in and around the royal cemetery, and in particular the painted tombs. Professor Abbas Sidahmed Mohammed Ali has begun work to remove Reisner’s spoil heaps, and re-excavate some of the royal tombs. In collaboration with the National Council of Antiquities and Museums (NCAM), and the people who live in the modern village at El Kurru, the team are working on a Site Management plan, to facilitate future access to the archaeological site, whilst protecting it the long-term.
