With nearly 30 years of experience in Egyptian archaeology research and excavations, much has been uncovered about ancient Thebes (modern Luxor) and the Valley of the Kings through the work of The University of Arizona Egyptian Expedition (UAEE).   

Enjoy a lecture tour of UAEE’s active projects, including excavations at the temple site of 19th Dynasty female pharaoh, Tausret, formerly the Great Royal Wife of Seti II; the surprising discovery of a small Ramesside temple; investigations in the tomb of   Tutankhamun to learn if there are additional chambers; & construction of a research facility on the West Bank.
