Ancient Egypt Research Associates explores Egypt’s archaeological record seeking the origins of civilization. Our mission is to contribute insight and understanding to the present awareness of cultural evolution.

In recent years, we have explored the development of urbanism, labor organization, and the elementary structures of ancient daily life at the once-Lost City of the pyramid builders at Giza.

AERA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Dr. Mark Lehner and Matthew McCauley, with the assistance of Margaret Sears, in 1985 for the purpose of funding and facilitating the research of the Giza Plateau Mapping Project, which grew out of the Sphinx Project.

    My name is Katelyn McCarty, I am graduating in June with my Bachelor of Arts in French and History from Western Washington University. I am interested in pursuing the study of Egyptology and was directed to your site by my professor Dr. Heiser. The Giza Project seems very interesting and I was wondering what would be the best way to get involved? Though I do not have a degree in archeology I spent last summer at a field school run by Central Washington University and so have hands on experience.

    Thank you very much for your time and can’t wait to hear back from you.
