ARCE does an amazing job cultivating a cultural and academic community under some very difficult circumstances. The facility is welcoming and central. As a researcher in Egypt, all of my interactions with with the ARCE staff, especially Djodi Deutsch, have been extremely congenial and professional.

Worked for several seasons at the edifice of Amenhotep II at Karnak in the early 1990's, a gig that would not have happened without ARCE support. Still enjoy reading both the JARCE and especially the Bulletin. The annual meetings are a must for anyone interested in Egypt, ancient or modern.
