Since 2008 a multidisciplinary Spanish-Egyptian project has been carried out in the temple of Millions of Years of Thutmosis III, in Luxor-Egypt

A large part of the architectural structures of the temple were made with mud bricks, among which stand out: the Pylon, the enclosure wall, floors of the courtyards, the storage areas, the houses of the priests and the foundations. This circumstance gives a prominent role to the restoration processes of the above-mentioned areas.

In order to conserve and exhibit this type of structures, we created a protective layer with the same recycled materials from the excavation itself, using the same construction techniques as the ancient Egyptians.

Many mud bricks with interesting marks are allowing a study on various construction stages, techniques and organization of the builders of this temple.

Some of these elements will be presented at this congress.
