The Colossi of Memnon and Amenhotep III Temple Conservation Project has worked in the Temple of Amenhotep III at Kôm el-Hettan since 1998 under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and the German Archaeological Institute. Documentation, reassembly, and display of ruined monuments on the site, as well as further research and publications of the latest discoveries, have been the project's main activities. This lecture will virtually explore the ancient and modern site, the progress of conservation work, and newly discovered features, with an outlook on the site management and the itinerary of the future visitors.

Professor Hourig Sourouzian is an Egyptologist and Art Historian, who has worked in Egypt since 1974 and directed The Colossi of Memnon and Amenhotep III Temple Conservation Project since 1998. Hourig is a Guest Professor at the American University in Cairo, Universities of Munich and Vienna, Collège de France and Paris-Sorbonne University.
