Archives Department

The CEAlex archives service brings together a range of documentary resources which illustrate the long history of Alexandria, from its foundation to the present day. These include:

  • scientific archives: manuscript, graphic and photographic archives of the archaeological research carried out by the CEAlex in the city and its environs;
  • an iconographic collection relating to the city: photographs of Alexandrian sites and monuments, objects from the Graeco-Roman Museum; engravings and old postcards;
  • old and rare works on Egypt, preferably Alexandria;
  • a collection of copies of the French-language press of Egypt;
  • Alexandrian family and institutional archives (18th to 21st centuries).

The department, which has a staff of ten, is responsible for collecting, classifying, communicating and preserving these documents, whatever their medium or form (handwritten, typed, graphic, photographic, etc.). The task of safeguarding and disseminating these documentary resources is supported by the digitising programme begun in 2001, with the creation of a dedicated unit within the Archives Department.
