Abstract
This paper describes the conservation actions taken at the excavation site in Old Dongola, in northern Sudan. In connection with the decision to create on that area the archaeological park, it was necessary to perform works to secure discovered objects and preparing them to explore. The work done in the 2013 season included the construction of a barrier protecting against sand and fencing in area of the future park as well as preparation to make the building of the Throne Room available for visitors.
