Abstract

Shallow groundwater and salt are causing rapid and significant deterioration of monuments and structures in Egypt. Rising groundwater levels, increasing concentrations of salt, coupled with biological processes, are causing rapid, often irreversible damage to unique antiquities, important structure and homes throughout Egypt. Such event happens Hierakonpolis palace and temple in Edfu, Egypt, located along the Nile River, which were occupied as early as 3800 BC and where Narmer Palette and the golden crown of Horus found (Fig 1).
