A New Web Site Design; A New Giza Blog

March 1, 2009

Welcome to the new Giza Archives Director’s Blog. On this page I hope to keep you abreast of our progress as we strive to create and maintain the world’s first centralized repository for the archaeology of the Giza Necropolis.

We continue to process and add images and documents from the Harvard University-Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition, directed by George Reisner from 1902 to 1947.

We also have international partners around the world, representing all the major Giza collections that had or have a direct archaeological connection to the Pyramids. So watch for the addition of materials online from museums, universities, and institutes in Berkeley, Berlin, Cairo, Hildesheim, Leipzig, Philadelphia, Turin, and Vienna.

In collaboration with colleagues such as Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities, and Mark Lehner of Ancient Egypt Research Associates, we hope to include not just Giza’s past, but its present and its future as well.
