Since its founding in 1882 the Egypt Exploration Society’s mission has been to explore ancient Egyptian sites and monuments, to create a lasting record of the remains, to generate enthusiasm for, and increase knowledge and understanding of, Egypt’s past and to raise awareness of the importance of protecting its heritage. Today the Society supports archaeological research projects throughout Egypt. We rely almost entirely on the support of our members and the wider public to fund our work and run an extensive programme of educational events in Egypt, the UK and beyond to convey the results to our audience.
You can follow our work in print and online via a series of blogs: The Delta Survey, The Imbaba Survey, The Minufiyeh Survey, The Tell Basta Project, The Tell Mutubis Survey, The Theban Harbours and Waterscapes Project, EES Director, Egyptian Archaeology (EA).
