LECTURE: From the Hudson to the Nile: New York Archaeologists in Egypt

Dr. Peter Lacovara, Director, The Ancient Egyptian Heritage and Archaeology Fund

For well over a century some of the most important Americans to work in Egypt and the Sudan have come from the Empire State. This lecture will trace the history of some of the most colorful characters from adventurers to scholars and reveal their most spectacular discoveries. These individuals played a role in shaping our understanding of the ancient past and their stories range from scandals to secret tombs.

Presented in partnership with the Ancient Egyptian Heritage and Archaeology Fund
