The American Research Center in Egypt

Northern California Chapter

Join us to explore the history and culture of Egypt from before the Pharaohs into the Age of Alexander and Cleopatra, Julius Caesar and Marc Antony; the rise of Christianity and its fall to Islamic conquerors; into the age of the Caliphs, the Mamelukes and Napoleon Bonaparte; and finally the rise of modern Egypt beginning with Mohammed Ali and the early European travelers and explorers, culminating in the Egyptian republic in its many changing forms.

We receive almost no outside funding and rely upon donations as our primary source of revenue. Lectures include such expenses as speakers honoraria and transportation fees and occasionally audio-visual equipment rental fees as well. Attendees are requested to make a donation at the door to help defray these costs. If you would like to make a donation to support our work, please use our DONATE! page to donate via PayPal (either use your PayPal acount or any credit card) or send a check in any amount made out to "ARCE/NC" to
