Preserving Egypt's Cultural Heritage: The Conservation Work of the American Research Center in Egypt

Under the directorship of the late Robert K. Vincent, Jr., conservation projects funded by USAID in collaboration with Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities ranged widely in their scope. Projects involving prehistoric sites in Sinai, the shattered sarcophagus of Ramesses VI in the Valley of the Kings, exquisite Greco-Roman mosaics, fine Coptic wall paintings, Islamic monuments, and numerous training programs, including archaeological field schools for Egyptian antiquities inspectors, were just some of the benefited areas described in this volume.Contributors: Hoda Abdel Hamid, Matthew Adams, Jere Bacharach, Elizabeth Bolman, Edwin.
