Dr Mostafa Waziry stands next to an Egyptian ancient artefact

‘The latest discoveries and findings from ancient Egypt’ by Dr Mostafa Waziry

Exclusive lecture
Friday 17 November: Learn more from the world leading expert Dr Mostafa Waziry about the many precious finds excavated by Egyptian hands, including tombs containing mummified remains, statues, coffins, and funerary furniture, and how these valuable findings are contributing to our understanding of ancient Egyptian history.

In Egypt, numerous excavations, discoveries and conservation works have been carried out from 2018 till now, covering various sites across Egypt dealing with different types of conditions such as sand, mud, dust, high temperatures and rainfall. 

This work has encompassed excavations, discoveries and conservation efforts at very important archaeological sites, such as Giza, Saqqara, El Ghorifa, Luxor and the Delta. These excavations have yielded numerous precious finds, including tombs containing mummified remains, statues, coffins and funerary furniture. 

With the remarkable discoveries made by Egyptian hands, several new Egyptian museums have been opened. Conservation efforts have also been diverse, involving activities such as preservation, reconstruction and cleaning. These initiatives have contributed to the development of various archaeological regions, such as Tanis, and site management plans have been implemented for several archaeological sites.

Dr Mostafa Waziry is in Australia on behalf of the Australian Museum to open the Ramses exhibition. This will be Dr Waziry's only keynote lecture during his time in Australia.
