Ancient Egypt Research Associates

During the 2015 excavation season, we conducted a beginners field school teaching archaeological excavation and recording techniques to 12 Egyptian Inspectors of the Ministry of Antiquities and two American University in Cairo students. Graduation took place at the Ministry of Antiquities headquarters in Zamalek, where certificates were handed out by Dr. Mustafa Amin, Chairman of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Shabaan Abd El Gawad, and Dr. Mark Lehner.


We are proud of all of our graduates and we hope to see some return for more advanced training in the future.We thank our AERA members and the generous donors who helped make this training possible.

Your support helps us to train the next generation of Egyptian archaeologists, who will spread their new skills and knowledge throughout Egypt.
