The Ancient Egyptian Heritage and Archaeology Fund Newsletter

The Ancient Egyptian Heritage and Archaeology Fund is a registered 501c3, private, nonprofit organization with a mission is to support research and conservation on Egyptian history and culture. In particular, it seeks to record and publish sites and monuments at risk from agricultural and urban expansion, looting, and vandalism.

In affiliation with the American University of Cairo and working at the Invitation of the Ministry of Antiquities of Egypt, we have been working since 2017 at the site of Deir el-Ballas. As the forward capital for the Theban kings during the Hyksos expulsion, Deir el-Ballas is of great archaeological and historical importance, but the site is at extreme risk from both looting and from the uncontrolled expansion of the neighboring modern town. Our fieldwork also dovetails with a grant we received from the Shelby White and Leon Levy Program for Archaeological Publications to prepare the results of the original expedition conducted at the site in 1900-1901 by George Andrew Reisner working for the Phoebe A. Hearst Expedition of the University of California.
