We envisage a world where the cultural heritage of Egypt is preserved for posterity.

Our mission is to explore Egyptian sites and monuments and share a lasting record of the remains.

Today the Society supports archaeological research projects throughout Egypt and Sudan. We rely almost entirely on donations from members and the wider public to fund our work and run an extensive educational programme of publications and training, as well as events to convey the results to interested audiences. 

Such is the fate of every Egyptian monument, great or small… The work of destruction goes on apace. There is no one to prevent it; there is no one to discourage it. Every day, more inscriptions are mutilated – more tombs are rifled – more paintings and sculptures are defaced.

Amelia Edwards, 1877
