The Kazimierz Michałowski Foundation

The Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology of the University of Warsaw (PCMA), founded by Professor Kazimierz Michałowski, has been carrying out archaeological excavations and conservation-restoration work in the Eastern Mediterranean for more than fifty years. The discoveries made during these years have introduced many changes into history books. The Centre conducts fieldwork and studies on sites from the prehistoric period through medieval times also in Sudan, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Cyprus, and it has recently embarked on projects in Kuwait and Iran. Apart from the excavation, conservation and restoration projects, the Centre has participated from the beginning in international rescue programs designed to save unique historical monuments from destruction caused by human and natural activities.

The Kazimierz Michałowski Foundation has supported the archaeological and conservation-restoration activities of the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology since 1990. Funds received from both private and corporate sponsors and patrons are allocated to specific research projects, aiding in discoveries that fill out unknown pages in world history and in the preservation of historic monuments, some of which are listed on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list. In the past twenty years or so, the Foundation has supported, thanks to its patrons, archaeological fieldwork at the Temple of Hatshepsut in Deir el-Bahari, in Alexandria and on some twenty other sites within the sphere of Ancient Mediterranean culture, explored by Polish specialists.

Join in discovering the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean by contributing in support of the Centre’s archaeological and conservation projects.
