Ahmed Galal - 2019 - CMAUCH Scholar
To follow my childhood dream of being an archaeologist, I studied Egyptology at the Faculty of Arts, Alexandria University. Following my graduation in 2007 I pursued a career at the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities. Firstly, I worked for 4 years as an antiquities inspector at Qaitbay Fortress in Alexandria. Then for 6 years I worked at the Alexandria National Museum. Currently I am working as an inspector at the Department of Underwater Antiquities (DUA), Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, Egypt.
As a result of the collaboration between the HFF and the DUA, I was delighted to receive the HFF studentship to obtain a Masters Degree in Maritime Archaeology from the Alexandria Centre for Maritime Archaeology & Underwater Cultural Heritage, Alexandria University.
