Ancient Egypt Research Associates
Ancient Egypt Research Association’s mission is to advance archaeological research, conservation, and training in Egypt, with a focus on ancient settlement and the archaeology of the Giza Pyramids Plateau. AERA shares and disseminates its research and findings through academic and popular publications, lectures, and educational outreach.
AERA works with the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities to train and support young Egyptian archaeologists in excavation, recording, and analysis of archaeological sites; training non-Egyptian archaeology students alongside young Egyptian archaeologists, promoting cross-cultural and educational exchange.
AERA Director and President is Dr. Mark Lehner.
