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

Rating: 4 stars  

The American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) is a 65-year-old nonprofit that's been working to preserve and conserve Egyptian antiquities from seven millennia and to train Egyptian conservators in this mission. ARCE also supports more than a dozen local chapters around the United States in assisting with lectures from renowned Egyptologists from around the world. The ARCE annual conference is a must-go-to event where an attendee can listen to more than 20 lectures from academics and independent scholars across various Egyptology topics--religion, art, history, texts, and field-work reports from Egyptologists that appear regularly on the History, Discovery, National Geographic, and PBS television channels. As a regular field-work contributor to the work of the American University in Cairo Professor Salima Ikram's North Kharga Oasis Survey, I've had the opportunity to contribute my scientific and Coptic language expertise to this project.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

promote the work of ARCE to the general public so they can realize why it's so important to save Egyptian history more than ever before.
