The Officers, Board and Members of the Arizona Chapter of the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE-AZ) welcome you.
This web page has been developed to share information regarding our local chapter of the American Research Center in Egypt, or "ARCE" (pronounced "ARE-C"). Most events hosted by the Arizona Chapter are in Tucson, but we strive to support interest in Egyptology anywhere in the state.
A new video on YouTube highlights the amazing work and contribution of ARCE in Egypt in cooperation with USAID.
