My name is Juan José Castillos, I am the Director of the Uruguayan Institute of Egyptology and I will refer you to some very interesting webpages where you will discover how a group of people in a small country are trying to contribute to a better knowledge of one of the most ancient and wonderful civilizations in the history of mankind.
In the last few decades new approaches to the archaeological work itself and to the interpretation of the results obtained by the archaeologists, have led to a better understanding of ancient people, their way of life, their social structure, their beliefs, their economy, their development from the uncertainties of prehistoric nomadic life to the relative comfort and security of a sedentary existence.
What seemed to be the privilege of a few rich countries which could afford to carry out archaeological projects in order to bring to light fresh evidence on the subject, is spreading to other areas of the world where people, with infinitely less resources but with great determination and a desire to contribute to the common goal, are doing research analyzing the new evidence.
Because most people are too busy earning their living and have little time to find out about these endeavours, why the work is being done and what it means for the average man and woman in terms of providing us with a global identity as citizens of the planet Earth rather than as people from one or other country, it is necessary to go to the general public and convey to them the reasons for all this work. Otherwise, every time we go to the government or elsewhere to ask for funds few people will find it worthwhile.
If you would like to know what we are doing, what we have accomplished so far, what are our goals and hopes for the future, please visit our following webpages:
