Travel to Egypt! Do exciting things! Just in from the EEF:
Via Dr. Janice Kamrin came this announcement:

The Cairo Museum is looking for volunteers to come
to Cairo and help with an important and urgent project:
to transcribe all of the museum's register books into
a new database. This information will form the basis
of a new collections management system, currently
being researched and designed by a team sponsored
by ARCE (the American Research Center in Egypt).

All volunteers must have a basic knowledge of
Egyptology and good computer skills (and must have
their own laptop). Reading knowledge of French is a
plus. Volunteers are expected to pay their own way
to Cairo and cover their own living expenses.

Anyone interested should contact the project director,
Dr. Janice Kamrin, at .
