The Ancient Egyptian Heritage and Archaeology Fund

I have left the Michael C. Carlos Museum after many years to start a new venture, The Ancient Egyptian Heritage and Archaeology Fund.  The Fund is a private, nonprofit organization with a mission is to support research and conservation on Egyptian history and culture.  In particular it seeks to record and publish sites and monuments at risk from agricultural and urban expansion, looting and vandalism and climate change.  The organization will also work to foster a greater awareness of the risks to Egypt’s archaeological heritage and to promote education and training in site management and protection.

Our first mission, I hope will be to return to Deir el-Ballas, where I worked many years ago and which is now under threat from the rapid expansion of what was a small town and is now becoming a medium sized city.
