Site Management: The Response to Tourism
Only careful planning and rigorous implementation can preserve those unique sites that every tourist hopes some day to visit. Chief among these are the monuments of Ancient Egypt, indisputably part of humanity’s most spectacular heritage. Zahi Hawass is director-general of the Giza Plateau and Saqqara, where he pioneered the concept of site management. He is the author of many books and articles on pyramids, Pharaonic Egypt and the problems of Egyptian monuments, and has lectured throughout the world. He also teaches archaeology at UCLA in Los Angeles, at the American University in Cairo and at Cairo University.
