Welcome to the UAEE!

The University of Arizona Egyptian Expedition (UAEE) was instituted in 1988 as a nonprofit scholarly entity. The UAEE is committed to ongoing excavation, research, and conservation work in Egyptian archaeology. The Expedition's focal area of research has traditionally been the Valley of the Kings and ancient Thebes, around modern Luxor, Egypt.

The UAEE is Directed by Dr. Pearce Paul Creasman. For general inquiries, please contact: UAEE@egypt.arizona.edu

Our Newest Book & the Wilkinson Egyptology Series

In August 2013, the UAEE published Archaeological Research in the Valley of the Kings and Ancient Thebes: Papers Presented in Honor of Richard H. Wilkinson, edited by P.P. Creasman. At nearly 400 pages and including 125+ color illustrations, this work is composed of two dozen chapters by leading scholars from around the world. A great variety of new discoveries and current research are presented, covering topics as diverse as ancient tomb robbery to historic love letters. To further honor Prof. Wilkinson, this tome serves as the inaugural volume in the "Wilkinson Egyptology Series," published by the UAEE (to learn more about the Series, see our Publications page).
