The year 1969 marks a very important step in the Sudanese archaeology with the agreement for cultural collaboration between France and Sudan. The Ministry of the French Foreign Affairs creates the French Section under the Direction of the French Service of the Sudanese Antiquities (SFDAS), future National Corporation for Antiquities and Museums (NCAM). This permanent mission has some very concrete goals:

 

- digging seasons with topographical survey

 

- laboratory works and documentation

 

- training of some Sudanese archaeologists

 

- salvage diggings because of the world in constant evolution

 

The first persons in charge were, André Vila, Francis Geus and Jacques Reinold.
