Supreme Council of Antiquities
The principal mission of the Ministry of State for Antiquities, previously known as the Supreme Council of Antiquities, is to protect and promote the cultural heritage of Egypt, both independently and in cooperation with national and international organizations. To achieve its goals, it formulates and implements all policies concerned with antiquities; issues guidelines and permits for the excavation, restoration, conservation, documentation, and study of sites and monuments; and manages a country-wide system of antiquities museums.
In addition, it oversees the publication of journals and books on archaeology and cultural heritage, and finances its own archaeological excavation, documentation, and conservation projects. The SCA is responsible for the protection of the rich legacy of all of Egypt’s eras, from prehistory through the Pharaonic, Greco-Roman, Coptic, and Islamic periods and into the modern age.
