Please consider supporting our efforts at Hierakonpolis.


Under the direction of Dr Renee Friedman a multi-national team is helping to excavate, conserve, analyse and research the desert site of Hierakonpolis. With a core team of members hailing from the US, UK, Belgium, France, Italy, Switzerland, Egypt, Japan and Australia, each bringing their own expertise, we are learning not only about the ancient site of Hierakonpolis, but also the world.
