  • Research in Sudan

    The history of Polish archaeological research in Sudan goes back to the 1960s, to the UNESCO-coordinated effort to save monuments endangered by the building of the Aswan Dam. It was than that Prof. Kazimierz Michałowski discovered the renowned Faras cathedral. The Polish mission transferred its wall paintings to museums in Khartoum and Warsaw, saving them from flooding by Nile waters. Nowadays, about 100 Polish scholars and students work in Sudan each year. Within several projects, they study sites from different periods, working also on the conservation and presentation of the excavated monuments.
