About the Trust
Welcome to the web-site of the Dakhleh Trust

The Trust was formed in 1999 and is registered as a charity in the United Kingdom, no. 1077449.

Its declared aim is to advance understanding of the history of the environment and cultural evolution throughout the Quaternary Period in the eastern Sahara and particularly in the Dakhleh Oasis in the Western Desert of Egypt.
