Monitoring Object and Visitor Environments (MOVE)

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

The aim of the MOVE project is to respond to the challenges of climate change and its implications for the care of collections and for energy management in museums in Egypt by providing an advanced tool for environmental monitoring. At present, internationally important collections in Egyptian museums are at risk from poor environmental controls and unstable and inappropriate conditions, which are leading to the deterioration of vulnerable artefacts. We will deliver on this aim through achievement of the following objectives: - We will address the lack of available standards appropriate to this region by building on existing environmental standards for museums in the UK and elsewhere to develop a set of criteria for collections care and visitor comfort which is accurate and appropriate to Egyptian contexts. - These criteria will form a basis for establishing an integrated monitoring regime for a range of relevant environmental parameters, including light, temperature, humidity and pollutant particles. This monitoring will encompass museum storage areas housing different artefact types including organic and inorganic materials as well as exhibition spaces where visitor comfort is a key consideration. - The platform we will create for live monitoring of these complex environmental parameters represents an alternative to traditional more cumbersome manual methods of data collection. This will support a more sophisticated approach to managing museum environments in response to challenging and changing climatic conditions. It will facilitate enhanced environmental management for three key applications: collections care, visitor comfort, and energy efficiency. - Designs for a dashboard will initially be developed in the UK combining existing best practice in this area with pilot studies at Salford Museum to create test models. These models will be tested and refined in Egyptian contexts to address a range of usability criteria and ensure the dashboard responds to local needs, including the display and visualisation of data, technical performance, maintenance, language etc. The final dashboard design will present relevant data in an accurate and easily accessible visual format and be straightforward for museum staff to understand and implement. - To address skills shortages in this area training will be provided to museum staff and trainee graduates to build capacity and widen the impact of the project with a view to improving the long-term care of Egyptian cultural heritage.

LABYRINTH: Conservation, Analysis and Virtual Reconstruction of the Archaeological Site of Hawara Pyramid and Labyrinth (El Fayoum)

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

The project aims to develop and implement an evidence-based strategy and action-plan to inform the sustainable preservation of the endangered archaeological site of Hawara (El Fayoum Governorate) using digital and virtual LiDAR Technologies. The project intends to foster tourism by increasing global awareness of the site and its historical significance. This project will inform and drive a UNESCO-led international effort to limit the impact of increasing hydrogeological threats, underground water table and continuous deterioration of the structural integrity of Pyramid burial chambers and the Labyrinth passages. The project is designed to answer a key research question; How effective is the use of digital LiDAR scanning technologies in mapping and synthesising discrete evidence-based findings on the spatial layout and conditions of underground archaeological structures? Furthermore, how this effectiveness could guide a sustainable preservation strategy for an endangered heritage site? To achieve this aim, this research programme will: a) Develop and implement a customised methodology for accurate 3D laser scan and digital survey, record and model existing conditions of the site. This method will include, 3D laser scanning, 3D sound recording, analysis of atmospherics and environmental conditions, above and underground. b) Utilise intelligent geophysical underground surveys to detect, analyse and model the labyrinth's remains, spatial layout and its water table. The research will aim to produce a credible layout of the Hawara archaeological site and location of underground structural remains. This will be achieved through overlaying archaeological, geomatic, geological and geophysical datasets, with spatial analysis and satellite imaging of the site. The project will collect multi-disciplinary data, and will process, generate and weight the dataset findings. The surveys will be coded and reproduced through visual infographics on the publicly accessible virtual reality modelling interface and website. c) Develop a prototype of a novel interactive virtual heritage platform. This prototype will integrate remote sensing indicators, satellite imaging analysis, geophysical datasets on the customary developed ArcGIS model of the site. This novel technique of overlaying different datasets to determine accurate locations of sub-surface structures is a semi-automated digital system with evidence-based predictive scenarios of excavation. d) Develop a virtual reality experience of the site (Pyramid and Labyrinth) portraying the site's history and evolution over time and history. This will also include developing associated educational infographics and virtual tours. This will form a critical part of a sustainable tourism strategy that will increase the awareness of the site and its historic significance through engaging global tourism and pre-university educational programmes. A series of cultural activities both onsite and online will also be developed.

Interdisciplinary approach for the management and conservation of UNESCO World Heritage Site of Historic Cairo. Application to Al-Ashraf Street.

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

This research project aims at proposing and applying an interdisciplinary approach for the management and conservation of the UNESCO world heritage site of Historic Cairo. In order to apply and demonstrate the developed methodologies, a part of the site has been selected, namely "Al-Ashraf street". The proposed project is not meant to be solely an engineering solution for the threats faced by this street but it is intended to provide a holistic approach that could be applied in other areas in Historic Cairo and, more generally, in other archaeological sites in Egypt and in other developing countries. Within this context, the specific objectives of the proposed project are: I. Develop a plan for the management of the historic site. This would include building and/or updating the Geographical Information System (GIS) of the site that includes information about existing structures, heritage value, land use, urban and demographic characteristics and state of urban systems, among others. II. Consider advanced Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) techniques as a tool in the site management. Continuous monitoring of a site, including deformations and cracking as well as ground water levels, is essential to its management and to assessing physical deterioration so that timely intervention and preventative actions can be undertaken. III. Employ structural assessment studies as part of the site management methodology. These studies will involve detailed safety evaluation of the historical structures under the risks imposed by several natural and environmental hazards, including those arising from seismic events and groundwater/dewatering effects. IV. Investigate experimentally the effect of rising groundwater levels on the structural characteristics and resilience of masonry load-bearing structural elements replicating the historic fabric of existing structures within the site. V. Devise optimum and non-intrusive intervention techniques that could be adopted for the conservation of representative structures, through laboratory experiments on prototype load-bearing elements replicating the main properties of the historic fabric. VI. Develop fundamental and sustainable solutions for rising groundwater levels inside and around the structures within the site. VII. Propose sustainable solutions for locations used as garbage dumps. This would include transformation to green areas, thus improving environmental and social conditions for the surrounding community. Groundwater dewatering, as a measure for controlling rising levels, would be considered for the irrigation of these green areas. VIII. Develop suitable waste management plans which are able to mitigate the threats to the public and the environment including those related to health risks and fire hazards. IX. Propose archaeological conservation plans for the deteriorated historical structures in the site. X. Allow citizen participation in the street conservation and management based on an understanding of the monument as a resource not a burden. XI. Integrate all the aforementioned into an interdisciplinary approach for the street conservation and management.
