The American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) Conservation Archives publishes collections documenting ARCE's USAID-funded conservation of historic sites and monuments located throughout Egypt. The collections document Egypt's vast and historically rich history through its material legacies. Diverse in subject and materials, collections span Pharaonic, Greco-Roman, Coptic and Islamic sites. Users of various backgrounds can explore images, drawings, reports and sketches to learn more about the historical and cultural significance of the site, conservation techniques utilized, cultural heritage project management, architectural conservation, and more.

More online collections are forthcoming as ARCE continues digitization of their conservation archives. To learn more visit ARCE's Conservation Archives website: and for more information on ARCE's overall efforts in cultural heritage preservation visit ARCE's main website:
