It has been estimated that only one-third of the Ancient Egyptian archaeological sites have been found so far, and new discoveries are being made almost daily. Many of those recent discoveries have been made on the Giza Plateau, in the shadow of the famous pyramids, and at nearby Saqqara and Abu Sir. Mahmoud Khodier’s illustrated lecture will discuss the work currently being done at these sites and their importance to our understanding of the history of the fascinating Ancient Egyptian civilization.
