Wael Fathi Morsi Hamada

Ministry of Antiquities

Chief Inspector

Country: Egypt

ITP Year: 2009


Wael currently works as the Chief Inspector of Giza pyramids at the Ministry of Antiquities in Egypt. Previously Wael was an Inspector in the Department of Archaeology at the Ministry of Antiquities.

At the British Museum
During his time on the International Training Programme in 2009, Wael was based in the Department of Egypt and Sudan and his partner placement was spent at The Collection – Art and Archaeology in Lincolnshire.

In 2009 an element of the programme was a morning of presentations, in which groups of participants presented a 10-minute illustrated talk, prompted by the task to consider a new display of the fellows’ cultures at the British Museum.  Wael’s exhibition proposal, with colleagues Hesham Hamed and Ahmed El-Laithy, was entitled Ginger – Reconsidering the display of human remains.

Legacy projects
In March 2010 Wael attended the Cairo Conference Towards a global network where he presented a paper on what he had gained, both professionally and personally, from attending the ITP and his career development since the programme.
