Project

The excavation, restoration and enhancement project of the Temple of Millions of Years of the Pharaoh Thutmose III began in 2008 and is the result of cooperation between the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities and the Academy of Fine Arts Santa Isabel of Hungary of Seville. The team is led by Dr. Myriam Seco Álvarez, who coordinates researches in the Temple of Millions of Years of one of the most important pharaohs of Ancient Egypt, considered as the Egyptian "Napoleon".

Currently, the project is funded mostly by the FUNDACIÓN BOTÍN and also has economic collaboration of the company CEMEX, from the year 2016 for the CAJASOL Foundation and from the year 2018 of GASELEC Foundation. From the first moments it has counted with the support of the Embassy of Spain in Cairo. In addition, the project maintains an agreement with SANTANDER universities and the Institute of Egyptology of the University of Tübingen, which aims to research and doctoral thesis.

Likewise, an agreement of collaboration with the Faculty of fine Arts of the University of Granada and the other with the Department of Prehistory and Archaeology of the University of Seville has been established to enable students from these universities to perform the practices in the archaeological site.

Thanks to this multiple funding and collaboration it has been possible to work for three months each year to rediscover this temple, which had been forgotten since the interventions of architect Ricke in the 1930s.
