People often ask me, ‘well, it’s not really as exciting as Indiana Jones, now is it?’
I reply, ‘to an archaeologist, yes, it certainly is!’

SCA Youths Travel to USA
SCA Youths Travel to USA

These young people from the SCA went on a two week study trip to the USA to learn about cultural and historic preservation, archaeology, and museum management. 10 youths traveled throughout the country to archaeological sites such as Mesa Verde, Colorado as well as to cities such as New York and Washington DC. Programs like this are important for encouraging young Egyptians to study Egyptology and enabling them to gain a global perspective through travel and meeting new people.
