Palabras clave:Egypt, archeology, Egyptology, tomb
This article narrates the experience lived throughout the Project for the conservation and study of the Theban Tomb 39.
This international project developed by the Mexican Society of Egyptology, the Universidad del Valle de México and the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia, began in 2005. This research project characterizes for its interdisciplinary approach in which archaeologists, restorers, historians and epigraphists worked side by side to ensure the conservation of the Egyptian monument located in the Valley of the Kings, which is currently listed as a World Heritage Site. With a duration of 15 years, this conservation project allowed the Mexican team to familiarize with the international and Egyptian guidelines used to preserve this kind of heritage, as well as to provide an idea of the conservation problems that the buildings in the desert region of Egypt face constantly. At the same time, it addresses the implications of setting
up an international and interdisciplinary work team.
