Conservation and restoration

Exposed archaeological remains and finds are to be preserved for future studies and presentation. The in situ remains (stone walls, mortar layers, storage vessels etc.) and archaeological situations (e.g. important sections in trenches) on Al-Khidr are protected after each season in cooperation with the NCCAL Architecture and Engineering Department. It would be necessary in the future to design a protective shelter to keep the site in good condition for future scientific and museum purposes. The finds from the site are conserved and restored immediately after exposure in the field laboratory of the mission on Failaka, and are then transferred to the archives of the Kuwait National Museum.
