Khaled
Khaled Azzam
Egyptologist & Archaeologist 

Egyptology, Archaeology, Ancient History and Christianity have become an ongoing fascination. This  is evident by the regular programming on these subjects on A&E and the History and Discovery Channels.

In addition after the events of 9/11 there is growing interest in the Islamic Culture and Religion as people seek to understand what has been previously unknown or misunderstood.

I am interested in sharing my knowledge on these subjects. As an Egyptologist/ Archaeologist with a strong interest in Islamic History and Art and having a license to guide in Egypt - I now reside in Canada and am available for:

Lectures
Presentations
Group guiding
Arabic/English translations
Calligraphy
Contract Assistance for any Egyptian projects
Recent Presentations and Lectures:
Queens County Historical Society - Ancient Egypt
Lunenburg Rotary Club - 2 - Ancient Egypt and the Pyramids
Lights along the Shore  Festival - Alexandria Lighthouse
Broad Cove Community Center - Ancient Egypt
Queens County Museum - Valley of the Kings

My partner and I own an International online Travel Agency - although international in content we specialize in Egypt and have a separate Egypt website.
