Ancient Egypt Alive! was born out of the personal vision of budding Egyptologists from the University of Toronto who wanted to share their passion and knowledge about Egypt while also charitably supporting their field of study. Since then, we have evolved and grown… with travel and learning as a central focus. We also care a great deal about fundraising for archaeology projects and Egyptian animal causes

Reveal in the glories of Ancient Egypt… through our learning events, online resources — and travel experiences

Since 2013, the association has celebrated Egypt’s great past and educated history lovers of all ages through a variety of vibrant and interactive learning events, happenings, tours, fundraising efforts and creative resources.

The aim is to raise awareness, support and enthusiasm about Egyptology with the general public, students, teachers, travelers, readers, die-hard Egyptophiles and ancient history geeks in Canada, the US and abroad.
