Giza 2015 Archaeological Field Training for Inspectors of the Ministry of Antiquities Project
Grantee: Mark Lehner: Ancient Egypt Research Associates (AERA)
Category: Training of Egyptian Personnel
Objective: This AEF award will cover the training costs for ten Egyptian MoA inspectors to take part in the Giza Archaeological Field Training Program for 2015. This program will take place at the Heit el-Ghurab settlement in Giza and will be integrated into the Ancient Egypt Research Associates (AERA)/American University in Cairo (AUC) archaeological training program for foreign students and AERA’s ongoing excavations. Training covers the principals and practice of excavation, site recording, archiving and report writing, with an introduction to ceramics, archaeological illustration, Archaeobotany, Zooarchaeology and Osteoarchaeology. AERA and ARCE have a long partnership in the training of Egyptian inspectors and this project shall be staffed by both foreign and Egyptian experts. ARCE is very pleased to be supporting a program that aims to integrate MoA inspectors with the international community where they can learn the core field-work principals along with their foreign counterparts ensuring that long term collegial ties are sustained.
