The International Association of Egyptologists (IAE) is the professional organization which unites world-wide scholars and scientists who study the ancient cultures of Egypt. The IAE advocates for the preservation of the world’s archaeological heritage and condemns any intentional targeting of cultural heritage sites in unequivocal terms.
The International Association of Egyptologists expresses its deep concern and support for our colleagues in the Sudan. Due to the violence from the warring factions, there is an immediate and serious threat to human lives, but also to Sudan’s cultural heritage in archaeological sites, museums and communities. We call upon the international institutions to speak out and help protect ordinary Sudanese citizens, who are the victims of these destructive forces.
