About the project

The basic aim of the Croato-Aegyptica (CA) database project is to select relevant material which represents the Egyptian cultural heritage in Croatia from both institutions and private collections (c. 4000–5000 artifacts). From its initial phase in 2003 around 3000 artifacts were analyzed and inserted into our CA database. In the next phase (2015–2018), the online digital catalogue, as the final product, will include all Egyptian museum and private collections in Croatia from the Predynastic periods until the Arab conquest of Egypt in the 7th century AD. The plan is to implement CA database into the Global Egyptian Museum which is carried out under the aegis of the International Committee for Egyptology (CIPEG) and the Center for Documentation of Cultural & Natural Heritage of Egypt (Cultnat).
