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, Curator, Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research. After 24 years at the helm, Dr. Richard H. Wilkinson, Regents' Professor of Egyptian Archaeology, will advise the UAEE in his new capacity as Founding Director. For general inquiries, please contact: UAEE@egypt.arizona.edu
