The American Research Center in Eygpt



Imagine understanding Egypt as the ancients saw it - envision the temple complexes of Karnak and Luxor among the many amazing accomplishments of engineering and scale. Consider the Roman and Coptic Christian influences that came next, much of which is still visible. Now juxtapose the modern era of Islam Greatnp from charitable community sabils offering fresh water to the grand mosques of Cairo. This is the cultural heritage that ARCE seeks to preserve by supporting academic scholarship, documentation, training, and conservation efforts.

Your contribution is a meaningful way to partner with ARCE in a mission of preserving Egypt’s past and strengthening cultural ties between the U.S. and Egypt.
