Washington DC’s own, Anthony “Tony” Browder makes history as the first African American to lead and fund an archeological excavation project in Egypt. In May 2018, Mr. Browder, his daughter Atlantis Tye Browder, and the ASA Restoration Project excavation team discovered 2700-year-old Kushite artifacts that were recently installed in the Egyptian Museum in Luxor. Mr. Browder and his team are continuing the difficult work of bringing to light ancient knowledge that will dramatically change our understanding of Nile Val­ley history and culture forever.

A Rich Legacy

Anthony Browder has an extensive portfolio as a celebrated cultural historian, Egyptian archeologist, author, and educational consultant. He is a Howard University graduate who lives in Washington DC. Two of his most recent noteworthy accomplishments include the 10-year anniversary of the ASA Restoration Project and the upcoming 2018 Kemetamorphosis Conference.

ASA Restoration Project Celebrates its 10th Anniversary

This year is the 10th anniversary of the ASA Restoration Project that was estab­lished to honor the late Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III, an esteemed psy­chologist, historian, master teacher, and author who was interna­tionally recognized for his outstanding scholarship regarding ancient Egyptian history.

Following in the tradition of Dr. Hilliard, Mr. Browder and his team have made significant dis­coveries that will change our understanding of Egyptian his­tory and culture:

  • He is currently excavating and restoring two 25th dynasty Nubian Kushite Tombs built 2700 years ago for the Kushite noblemen and priest Karakhamun and Karabasken the mayor of Luxor and assumed member of the Royal Kushite Family.
  • Karakhamun’s Tomb is over three times the size of King Tut’s tomb and contains priceless literary and architec­tural treasures.
  • Atlantis Browder was the first African American to enter Karakhamun’s burial chamber; where a 20,000 pound, red granite sarcophagus was discovered.
  • This year he discovered a complete set of limestone canopic jars in the Karabasken Tomb of a Kushite princess known as “Amenirdis-Lady of the House” that are on display in the Luxor Museum in Egypt.

Mr. Browder’s work is celebrated throughout the world from Egypt to Amer­ica as the first African American to engage in such a historic undertaking.
