Archaeologists ask for funds to save the Kabash road, which connects Luxor with Karnak

Luxor archaeologists and tour guides on Sunday demanded that Mohamed Abdel Maqsud, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, launch an international campaign to save the Kabash road.

Kabash is the road that connects the Karnak and Luxor temples and is 2700 meters long. Mansour Barek, supervisor of the archaeological zone, has emphasized the need to provide funds to compensate the people whose buildings were demolished and to relocate those who live in Abu Asaba, north of the road, as their homes encroach on this road.

When these steps are taken, the project to make Luxor the largest open-air museum in the world will be almost complete. Barek said he only needed 20 million euros to complete the project, which includes the discovery and restoration of the road. 80% of the project has already been completed.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news about archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
