The University of Arizona Egyptian Expedition (UAEE) was established in 1988. The UAEE is committed to ongoing excavation, research, and conservation work in Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology. The Expedition's focal area of research has traditionally been the Valley of the Kings and ancient Thebes, around modern Luxor, Egypt, but includes all reaches of what was formerly ancient Egypt and its interconnected world. As of 2016, we have expanded our scope to include annual work in Sudan, specifically at the pyramids and royal cemetery of Nuri (home to pharaohs of the 25th Dynasty and its Napatan descendants).
The UAEE's primary goals are the recovery, production and dissemination of knowledge as relates to ancient Egypt and its neighbors.
