This exhibition presents several salvage campaigns led by the National Commission for Antiquities and Museums and the Dams Implementation Unit (DIU) on the sites of the dams of Merowe, Dal, Kajbar, Roseires, Dagash, Mograt, Sabalok, Sabaloka, upper Atbara and Sitite.

Several foreign missions have participated in these surveys and excavations.
