ARCE OPENS EXCITING NEW DOOR: GROWING OUR NATIONAL PRESENCE IN 2017
ARCE's Board of Governors has announced the U.S. office will move to the Washington, D.C area in 2017. Motivated by a desire to expand ARCE's leadership role in the American study of Egyptian culture and history, the new location and office space reflect ARCE's vision that engaging major philanthropy to support our mission is critical, even as we maintain and strengthen the partnership role to the US government within Egypt that Dr. Gerry Scott and our previous Directors established. Our mission has never been more important.
MAY TRAD, 1930-2016
May Trad, an Egyptological institution in herself, will always be remembered fondly by generations of scholars for her vast knowledge of the Egyptian Museum and countless topics on Egyptology. For years she was an invaluable aid to accessing the treasures held in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. “She knew all of the various registration systems by heart, it seemed, and was always generous in sharing her time,” remembers ARCE Director, Gerry Scott. “One of her great loves was discussing Egyptology with scholars and sharing in the excitement of their research.”
COLORFUL REMAINS PRESERVED BY ARCE CONSERVATION FIELD SCHOOL
ARCE’s current job creation and site improvement project, supported by USAID and in cooperation with the Ministry of Antiquities, involves two New Kingdom tombs at Dra Abu el-Naga. The tombs of Niay and Raya sit side by side on the barren hillside and have been the focus of ARCE's Conservation Field School this past year.
