Archaeology in Egypt

Information about archaeology in Egypt.

Archaeology is the science that studies human cultures through the recovery, documentation, analysis, and interpretation of material remains and environmental data, including architecture, artifacts, features, biofacts, and landscapes. Although the goals of archaeology vary, the overarching aim is simply to better understand mankind.

The World Heritage List includes properties forming part of the cultural and natural heritage that the World Heritage Committee considers as having outstanding universal value. Many of these archaeological sites, such as Machu Picchu in Peru and the Pyramid Fields of Egypt, are well-established tourist destinations. It's a good starting point for those seeking out examples of archaeology in Egypt.

Please submit your thoughts on World Heritage sites in Egypt or active archaeology dig sites that can be found in Egypt. If possible, please explain how a traveler can participate in or observe an excavation in progress.

i am a masters student in history in the university of Yaounde , i made a discovery in my village last week. Actually when digging the road leading to my uncles house i excavated ceramic objects(vassels or pots) about 4meters into the ground, and no one is about to say when this model of objects was made in the village. i presume it should be a very very old site,
what should i do to be able to estimate the age of these objects; my village is some where in menchum division north-west region of cameroon
thank you for understanding
