Valley of The King's Site Management Masterplan
The Theban Mapping Project announces the publication of the Valley of the Kings Site Management Masterplan on the TMP’s website @

The Valley of the Kings (Wadi Biban el Mouluk) on the West Bank of the Nile in Luxor, in the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a World Heritage site whose archaeological fame and economic importance as a tourist destination are internationally recognized.
The result of its popularity has been a massive increase in visitor numbers over the last decade, now often exceeding 7,000 visitors every day. This number is guaranteed to increase in future years. Without a carefully prepared site management plan, the very existence of this fragile resource could be seriously threatened.
In the spring of 2004, the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) commissioned the Theban Mapping Project to prepare a site management masterplan for the Valley. This project was generously supported by the World Monuments Fund (WMF), and the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE), and several private donors.
This ‘final draft for public consultation’ is now available for you to download and we would very much like to have your feedback regarding our proposal for the future of this important site.
