The University of Arizona Egyptian Expedition (UAEE) was instituted in 1988 as a nonprofit scholarly entity. The UAEE is committed to ongoing excavation, research, and conservation work in Egyptian archaeology. The Expedition's focal area of research has traditionally been the Valley of the Kings and ancient Thebes, around modern Luxor, Egypt.
The UAEE's primary goals are the recovery, production and dissemination of knowledge.
