We are a group of friendly people interested in all aspects of the archaeology and culture of Ancient Egypt. We hold monthly meetings that are free and open to the public, as well as occasional seminars and social activities. Come join us as we meet with the most important Egyptologists, art historians and archaeologists of our day.

North Texas ARCE is:

  • a Texas 501C3 non-profit organization associated with the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE, pronounced ‘are-see’)
  • Dallas’ host to the world’s prominent Egyptologists and related scholars
    monthly meetings (all free and open to the public, with refreshments) and regular seminars

  • What the heck is that March

    Lacking a cell phone camera with which to make selfies, Pharaoh Amenhotep VIIIth had wall panel carved portraits prepared whenever one of his relations dropped by.  Here we see the king with his cousin Clarisse-Hotep, her husband Re-Meket and the kids.
