Envisioning a Future for the Valley of the Queens: The GCI and SCA Collaborative Project

An interior view of the tomb of Queen Nefertari. Osiris and Anubis flank the entrance to a side chamber. Conservation of the tomb—undertaken by the GCI and Egyptian authorities between 1986 and 1992—involved cleaning and stabilization of the wall paintings, salt removal, and infilling of lacunae.
