His Excellency Ambassador Mohamed Edrees of Egypt
Egypt: A Journey along the History of Civilization
Thursday, October 17, 2019, 6:30 PM

The Archaeology Committee of The National Arts Club, celebrating International Archaeology Day, presents His Excellency Ambassador Mohamed Edrees of Egypt. Egypt and Civilization are words which belong together.

Much inquiry has centered around tombs, temples, monuments. It is instructive to witness a rare culture and legacy encompassing Pharaoh‎s, Ptolemaics, Copts, Muslims. With creative perspective, the diversity and density of layers existing beyond time can be understood.

Egypt served as melting pot, integrated into a singular heritage. Together we embark upon a voyage unlike any other: a journey extending from rocks to symbols and from people to intellectual concepts, humanity’s journey through history to a unique civilization.
