The necropolis in the El-Salamuni Mountain, from the Greco-Roman period, is at risk of deteriorating so far that it will be lost.
The damage done is due to a combination of factors i.e. looting, environmental damage, vandalism and disrepair due to a general disregard for the importance of the site. The project will survey and document the site, restore the chambers, take precautions for the safeguarding of the site, engage the local community to encourage ownership, and encourage both tourism to the area and academic interest in the site.
