Ahmad Kamal Bey was Egypt’s first Egyptologist and pioneer in his own country. He trained under the German Egyptologist Heinrich Brugsch.
He served as a curator at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo and a staff member of the Supreme Council of Antiquities. He was jointly responsible for the Egyptian collections’ classification and significantly involved in the museum’s removal from both Boulaq to Giza and Giza to the Tahrir Square at Cairo’s city center.
He took part in several excavations at Dayr al-Barsha, Gabal at-Tayr, Tihna el-Gebel, Gamhud, Atfih, Mayr, Shaykh Sa’id, Asyut and in the Nile Valley.
