Review for American Research Center in Egypt Inc, San Antonio, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As someone who has participated in archaeological excavations in Egypt for the last twelve years, I can honestly say that American archaeological missions such as ours in Egypt could not operate without the logistical support and assistance of The American Research Center in Egypt. No other organization within Egypt has the experience, expertise or outstanding staff to provide that support. In addition to its assistance with archaeological missions, ARCE’s conservation work within Egypt, ranging from pre-dynastic sites to endangered Islamic and Christian monuments, has helped to preserve the heritage of Egypt − and through it, the world’s heritage – as no other organization has done. Equally important, ARCE’s field schools are training Egyptians in modern archaeological techniques and instilling in the schools’ participants an understanding and respect for their own culture and history. The international conferences sponsored by ARCE within Egypt and in North America bring together noted scholars and interested non-professionals from throughout the world to listen to and discuss the latest developments in Egyptian archaeology, conservation and current scholarship. In addition, ARCE sponsors and assists numerous chapters and other study groups throughout the United States and Canada, providing information and expert speakers who promote the understanding and appreciation of the history and cultures of the Middle East.
