Dr Zahi Hawass

 

Dr Hawass has made a number of major discoveries over the course of his career, including the Tombs of the Pyramid Builders at Giza and the Valley of the Golden Mummies at Bahariya Oasis. He has discovered two previously unknown Old Kingdom pyramids, one near the Great Pyramid of Khufu at Giza, and one belonging to a queen of King Teti at Saqqara. Also at Saqqara, he rediscovered the pyramid of the 6th Dynasty queen Khuit, along with another pyramid which he has determined that it belonged to a 5th Dynasty queen. Dr Hawass has been involved in several other important archaeological projects. He led the search for the tomb of Cleopatra and Mark Antony on the premises of a Ptolemaic temple near Alexandria. He enriched the search for the so-called “hidden doors” inside the Great Pyramid. In addition, Dr Hawass launched a new excavation under the Nile River’s waters, searching for missing obelisks and statues.

One of the most significant research efforts led and managed by Dr Hawass was the Egyptian Mummy Project (EMP), which used modern forensic techniques such as CT and DNA analysis to answer questions about the royal mummies. Some of the most important discoveries that Dr Hawass has made through the EMP are his identification of the mummy of Queen Hatshepsut, the uncovering of the family of King Tutankhamun, and solving the mystery of the murder of Ramesses III.

As an archaeologist deeply concerned about the conservation and protection of Egypt’s monuments, he supervised major conservation projects for the Great Sphinx, and the Serapeum and Step Pyramid at Saqqara. He has developed site management plans for a number of important areas, including the Unfinished Obelisk Quarry in Aswan, the temples of Kom Ombo, Edfu, and Dendera, the West Bank of Luxor, Giza, and Saqqara. He has also initiated the construction of nineteen new museums throughout Egypt, including the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) and the National Egyptian Museum of Civilization (NEMC). Under his direction, several historical mosques, churches, and synagogues have been restored and reopened to the public. Dr Hawass has actively promoted the organization of exhibitions of the treasures of King Tutankhamun in many cities in America, Australia, Europe, and Japan. These exhibitions have brought more than $125 million in revenue to Egypt.

Dr Hawass’ dynamic personality and extensive knowledge have sparked global interest in ancient Egypt. He has brought the world of the pharaohs into the homes and hearts of people all over the world through his numerous television appearances and books for general audiences. In 2006, Dr Hawass received an Emmy from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for a special on ancient Egypt produced by KCBS in Los Angeles. Some of his most popular TV appearances have been Mysteries of the Pyramids, live from Cairo with Omar Sharif; Good Morning America, live from the Great Sphinx with Joan Lunden; and The Today Show with Matt Lauer. He has appeared in three live prime-time productions for Fox Television - the first, in March 1999, was with Maury Povich; the second, in May 2000, was with actor Bill Pullman and host Hugh Downs; and the third was a look behind the hidden doors inside the Great Pyramid through the use of a robot equipped with a fiberoptic camera. Dr Hawass has also appeared in many documentaries by the BBC, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, History Channel, PBS, and The Learning Channel. He was chosen by the BBC for a profile representing Egypt in the New Millennium, and was featured by the CNN in a short profile in 2008. National Geographic has produced a film on his life and work. Dr Hawass is the spokesman for the CNN on archaeological news in Egypt, and he has also been featured on many TV shows in Europe and Japan. He has been profiled in print in the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, and the London Times. Most recently, he appeared in the History Channel series Chasing Mummies.

Dr Hawass has written many books for general audiences on ancient Egypt, including:

Silent Images – Women in Pharaonic Egypt; Hidden Treasures of Ancient Egypt; Secrets from the Sand; Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs; Tutankhamun – The Treasures of the Tomb; Royal Tombs of Egypt – The Art of Thebes Revealed; The Great Book of Ancient Egypt – In the Realm of the Pharaohs; and Mountains of the Pharaohs – The Untold Story of the Pyramid Builders. His book about his great discovery at Bahariya Oasis, The Valley of the Golden Mummies, became a bestseller and has been published in five languages. He has also authored several books for children. He writes regular columns for Al-Ahram Weekly and has contributed to articles for GEO, along with many other popular magazines. Three important books are now in press: Scanning the Pharaohs: CT Imaging of the New Kingdom Royal Mummies (AUC Press), Giza and The Pyramids (Thames and Hudson), and Adventures in Archaeology (in French and in Italian).

Over the course of his long career, Dr Hawass has been presented with numerous international awards and honors. In 1998, the President of Egypt bestowed on him the First Class Award for Arts and Sciences, and he also received the Pride of Egypt Award from members of the foreign press in Egypt. He was one of 30 international figures to receive the Golden Plate Award from the American Academy of Achievement for his accomplishments in archaeology. In July 2001, the National Geographic Society selected Dr Hawass as one of its Explorers-in-Residence, and the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences granted him a Silver Medal and membership in the academy. During November of the following year, his name was inscribed on a CD carried by the 2003 mission of the Mars Exploration Rover. Time magazine chose him as one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in 2006. The following year he was made an officer in the French Order of Arts and Letters, and in 2008 he received the rank of commander in the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic. That same year, Dr Hawass was presented with a World Tourism Award and designated a Goodwill Ambassador to Japan by the Egyptian and Japanese Ministries of Foreign Affairs.

He is currently working as a lecturer in Egypt and all over the world. In cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism, he promotes Egypt’s tourism globally. He is also a writer of weekly articles in several Egyptian newspapers and magazines, as well as in the London-based newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat. Dr Hawass is also working as an archaeologist and consultant for SC Exhibitions – Semmel Concerts GmbH, promoting the exhibition “Tutankhamun – His Tomb and His Treasures”. His recent book Discovering Tutankhamun: From Howard Carter to DNA was published by the American University in Cairo Press with the cooperation of Semmel Concerts. Dr Hawass’ website is a popular source of information about ancient Egypt.

Egyptian Government Positions

2011: January 31-March 7, Minister of State for Antiquities. For the first time, the government made Antiquities as a separate Ministry.

2011: Minister of State for Antiquities March 30 to July 17

2002-2011: Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities As Secretary General of the SCA, I have worked to preserve and protect Egypt’s ancient monuments through the implementation of the following

Programs:

I -  Introducing the concept of site management to Egypt. In the past, the proper management of antiquities sites was poorly understood here, but as Secretary Generalof the SCA, I have begun to implement the following strategies to ensure that Egypt’santiquities sites are properly maintained:

  • Enforcing zoning around ancient monuments, using natural boundaries and constructing walls to delimit and protect antiquities
  • Constructing visitors’ centers with facilities and educational materials includingfilms to introduce visitors to the
  • Building sidewalks to guide tourists around the sites and improve access
  • Developing a comprehensive conservation plan for each
  • Instituting training programs for the personnel who maintains the sites
  • Major conservation and restoration programs of whole sites. Examples of sites with completed site management plans: The unfinished obelisk at Aswan, the Temple of Edfu, the Temple of Kom Ombo, the Temples of Luxor and Karnak, the Valley of theKings, Deir el-Bahri (Temple of Queen Hatshepsut), the Temple of Dendereh, Tell Basta, Pompey’s pillar in Alexandria, El Moezz Street in Islamic Cairo, KomMadi in Fayoum, Temple of Kalabsha, and the site of Kom El Dekaa in Alexandria
  • Other sites under development: Abydos; Kom el Shokafa-Alexandria; Abu Rowash; Tanis; Dahshur; Memphis; The Elephantine in cooperation with the German Institute
  • Sites almost completed: The Giza Pyramids; Saqqara; The Valley of the Queens in cooperation with the Getty-Conservation Institute; Tell El Amarna - the visitor center is completed roads to the tombs and conservations of the tombs; Abousir; Lisht.

II -  Revitalizing Egypt’s museum system, transforming Egyptian museums from outdated storage facilities into modern, world-class cultural institutions. More than nineteen new museums are under construction:

  • The Grand Egyptian Museum, Giza
  • The Sohag National Museum
  • The Sharm El-Sheikh National Museum
  • The Hurghada National Museum
  • The Citadel Coin Museum, Cairo
  • The Akhenaten Museum, Minya
  • The Mosaic Museum, Alexandria
  • The Faiyum Portrait Museum
  • The Marine Museum, Alexandria
  • The Greco-Roman Museum, Alexandria
  • The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, Cairo
  • The Underwater Museum, Alexandria
  • The Royal Chariot Museum-Cairo
  • Development of Kafr El Shiek Museum
  • Development of Port Said Museum

In addition, we are redeveloping Egypt’s existing museums by re-envisioning their design, re-organizing their collections, and updating their facilities.

III -  Improving security at antiquities sites. Theft and vandalism have taken animmeasurable toll on Egypt’s monuments over the centuries, but as Secretary General of the SCA I have taken the following measures to protect our antiquities from furtherlosses:

  • Strengthening Egyptian laws regarding theft and vandalism of Changes to law 117 of 1983 have imposed more severe penalties for antiquities-related crimes, and a new law, will make it possible for us to pursue legal action in Egypt against international offenders suspected of theft or vandalism to monuments. The theft of antiquities will be a crime under the new law. Also, the SCA now holds the rights to replicas of antiquities and a certain number of monuments will be trademarked. The Parliament approved an extension to the new law. I had a fight with some members of the Parliament who wanted to make Antiquities trade legal within the country.
  • Building 36 new storage facilities to house objects that have not been registered as part of museum collections. These new facilities include electronic equipment to improve security, and are also equipped with modern photography and conservation labs. There is almost a store in every city in Egypt. These types of storage magazines saved the Antiquities of Egypt during the Revolution of January 2011
  • Having electronic databases created to record all of the objects in museum collections and storage facilities throughout Egypt. A team from the documentation center, and in the Cairo Museum are conducting this work
  • Providing better training and pay for security personnel at antiquities sites, museums, and storage facilities

IV -   Supporting educational programs to raise awareness of Egypt’s history among both children and adults. I have encouraged the establishment of organizations such asthe Friends of the Egyptian Museum, Islamic, and Coptic Museums, and thedevelopment of museum education programs for children and adults.

The SCA now also supports programs in schools, programs in which children create sculptures of Egyptian monuments and antiquities in sand, and summer programs at museums, as well as educational opportunities abroad for our personnel. The SCA has also developed a program in which children help to publish their own magazine entitled Golden Boy for Kids. Also, there was an adult popular magazine, called Happy and another magazine called Our Antiquities Today.

V -  Working to bring stolen artifacts back to the people of Egypt. I have actively promoted the return of illegally obtained objects in museum and private collections abroad, and Egypt’s efforts to have important artifacts repatriated have become an inspiration to other countries around the world. Since I became Secretary General of the SCA, over 5,000 stolen treasures have been returned to Egypt, and officially wrote to Germany for the return of the bust of Nefertiti. Two Exhibits for the recovered stolen artifacts were organized in the Cairo Museum.

VI -   Supporting the professional development of Egyptian scholars. I have worked to ensure that young Egyptians have access to the best training available in modern excavation, conservation techniques, museums, and site management, and the SCA now helps obtain scholarships and placement in programs abroad for promising young archaeologists, conservators, and museum professionals. It is my belief that this is the most important step that can be taken to protect Egypt’s monuments – ensuring that Egyptians, who are charged with the primary responsibility for the care of our antiquities, are prepared to accept the challenges facing Egyptology as we move into the future.
