Who are we?

 Researchers | Students

The Egyptological Laboratory of the National Museum is the first Brazilian Lab dedicated to studying the archaeology of Ancient Egypt. Linked to the National Museum (which is associated with the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, UFRJ), the Lab’s research focuses on the Museum’s Egyptian collection – the biggest in Latin America – and on the archaeology of Ancient Egypt.

Under the leadership and coordination of Prof. Dr. Antonio Brancaglion, the Lab develops different lines of questioning that prioritize the analysis of Egyptian archaeological objects, as well as an understanding of Ancient Egyptian society in several periods.
