A scheme to promote archeological awareness among Historic Cairo's local residents began on Sunday at Al-Selehdar House.

The scheme also aims to develop the skills of antiquities ministry employees to ensure historic sites in Egypt are understood and protected.

Antiquities Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said the programme was being implemented in collaboration with UNESCO and would be repeated in the future.

Mohamed Abdel-Aziz, head of the Historic Cairo Rehabilitation Project (HCRP), said the programme aimed to acquaint people with his organisation's work and to raise awareness of important historic sites in the city.

It would also present problems facing Historic Cairo and discuss how the HCRP is seeking to solve them.
