Egyptian history provides us with a legacy of cultural heritage – from the pyramids at Giza; to a Greco-Roman villa in Alexandria; to Khonsu Temple at Karnak; to exquisite mosaics and wall paintings in tombs, churches, and monasteries throughout the country. These monuments, artwork and artifacts preserve the human record and connect us to the past.
Egypt’s ever-increasing population, modernization and need to maintain a robust tourism industry as an integral part of its economy have placed demands on these irreplaceable treasures. Environmental threats, urbanization, and development threaten historic sites and the artistic masterpieces they contain. If we lose them, they will be gone forever, as will the lessons they continue to teach us about our world. ARCE members help preserve Egyptian cultural heritage for the benefit of current and future generations.
