On many occasions the fact rebuild, preserve or restore various historical infrastructures it can be a cost that not everyone can bear, for that reason funding is always sought from different organizations and entities, whether public or private.

One of the latest news related to this aspect takes us to the ancient Greco-Roman city of Kiman Faris, where the conservation project of this corner of Egypt has been completed, as stated a few dates ago in a press release by the Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Mamdouh al-Damaty.

As stated by archaeologist Fathy Khourshid, “The city of Kiman Faris was undoubtedly one of the largest Greco-Roman cities in the Fayum. The city was established by the Greek king Ptolemy II (285 BC - 246 BC)”. At the time it was an important religious center for the worship of the god Sobek, known as the crocodile god, and its population was around 2,800 people, according to researchers' estimates.

Arquino Arquitectura published an article on his website where he made it clear that the pieces on display are one of the few physical remains that remain of this impressive city as well as its great temple. The work was carried out as part of the URU Project between the universities of California, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen and the University of Auckland, always under the supervision of the Egyptian Ministry of State for Antiquities and with funding from the United States Fund for Cultural Preservation, managing to carry out one of the most ambitious projects and that today has already materialized into a formidable reality.

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 of 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.
