Membership info

The Friends of Saqqara Foundation helps to support the Dutch excavations in the New Kingdom necropolis at Saqqara. With your help the expedition can continue to explore this fabulous site, to restore monuments they have found, to acquire the necessary equipment and to employ more workmen. In exchange for your generosity you will receive the annual Newsletter, access to the exclusive Friends-section of our website, and gain up-to-date and first-hand information on the ongoing excavations from the archaeologists themselves.
