Work on the Facsimile of Tutankhamun
The High resolution recording and production of an exact facsimile of the Tomb of Tutankhamun is part of a major initiative by the Supreme Council of Antiquities to preserve the tombs in the Valley of the Kings. The project is being run by the University of Basel with permission from the Supreme Council of Antiquities. The agreement covers the tombs of Seti I, Nefertari and Tutankhamun.
The work is being organised by The Friends of the Royal Tombs of Egypt (a Swiss foundation), The Factum Foundation for Digital Technology in Conservation (a Spanish foundation) and Factum Arte. All the work to record and make the facsimiles has been carried out by Factum Arte.
