Studying and doing research in Egypt
Dear students and researchers at our institute,
Visit of the Minister of Antiquities to Dayr al-Barsha
On Monday 7 March 2016 the Minister of Antiquities, Dr Mamdouh Eldamaty, and the governor of Minya, General Tariq Nasr, visited the site of Dayr al-Barsha, where they were guided around by Prof. Harco Willems. After the recent events, the minister and the governor have expressed their support for the safeguarding of the site, for which we are most grateful.
The Villa of Serenus in Dakhla
After years of hard work, the Roman Villa of Serenus at Amheida in the Dakhla Oasis, of which the reconstruction in mud brick was commissioned to architect Dr Nicholas Warner by the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (New York University), after which it was beautifully decorated by Dorothea Schulz, is as good as ready to be opened (just a few final touches remain on the decorations). Our institute facilitated the decorating work by Dorothea, which were financially made possible by grants from the Netherlands Embassy in Cairo, to whom we are very grateful.
