World-renowned archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass currently serves as Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities and Director of Excavations at Giza, Saqqara, and the Bahariya Oasis. Dr. Hawass is responsible for many exciting recent discoveries, including the Tombs of the Pyramid Builders at Giza and the Valley of the Golden Mummies at Bahariya. At Giza, he also uncovered the satellite pyramid of Khufu and is currently planning to reveal the secrets behind the “doors” inside the Great Pyramid. At Saqqara, his important finds include the tomb of the royal physician Qar and the substructure of the so-called “Headless Pyramid.” At Bahariya, Dr. Hawass has also found the tombs of one of the ancient governors of the area, Djed-Khonsu-iuf-ankh, and his family, under modern houses in the town of El-Bawiti. He has lectured to large audiences all over the world, most frequently in Europe, Japan, and the United States, on such topics as the pyramids, mummies, and his numerous excavations.Hawass is extremely concerned about the conservation and protection of Egypt’s monuments. He has supervised a major conservation project on the Great Sphinx and developed site management plans for a number of important sites, including the Unfinished Obelisk Quarry in Aswan and the temples of Kom Ombo, Edfu, and Dendera. Currently, he is completing site management plans for the West Bank of Luxor, Giza, and Saqqara.Most recently, Dr. Hawass was instrumental in sending King Tutankhamun back to the United States. During the exhibit’s openings in Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, and Chicago, Dr. Hawass again entered the homes of thousands of Americans, making a number of television appearances to promote the return of the golden king. His web site is a popular source of information about Ancient Egypt and also hosts a fan club for children.www.guardians.net/hawass
