Harvard: Revolutionizing Egyptology

Harvard University lays claim to one of the longest-running archaeological digs in Egypt and the Sudan. For more than 40 years (1905–1947), the Harvard-MFA Expedition was headquartered at “Harvard Camp,” a modest complex just a short walk west of the famous Pyramids of Giza. Sculptural masterpieces, monumental temples, pyramids, fortresses, exquisite gold jewelry, and objects of daily life are all part of the expedition’s legacy.
