The Glen Dash Foundation was founded in 1996. We previously applied remote sensing and advanced topographic survey techniques to archaeological problems. Now we focus on supporting others who conduct archaeological research around the world.
Our work has taken us around the world. We have worked at Helike in Greece, on the island of Yeronisos in Cyprus, and in the US. At Giza in Egypt, we worked at the Lost City of the Pyramid Builders and the Menkaure Valley Temple mapping subsurface features with ground penetrating radar (GPR) and magnetometry. At the Sphinx, we used GPR to see inside a massive, enigmatic masonry box attached to its haunch along with within the Sphinx Temple. At the Great Pyramid, we resurveyed its base using the latest topographical survey techniques, and in association with Ancient Egypt Research Associates (AERA) produced new, more accurate estimates for its original size and orientation. In the Valley of the Kings, we joined Dr. Zahi Hawass’ expedition performing targeted remote sensing surveys and topographic measurements on his behalf.
Our experimental archaeology program has also determined that the Egyptians could have oriented their pyramids to true north with extraordinary accuracy using relatively ordinary tools.
Our current focus is to continue archaeological support program continues to provide assistance to archaeologists worldwide. The Glen R. Dash Charitable Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. We invites proposals for research in the field of archeology with priority given to those using ground penetrating radar (GPR). Grants are awarded to the most capable scholars, with the most promising projects.
You will find much more about us on this site including published papers, working papers and annotated photographs. We welcome your inquiries, questions or comments.
The Glen R. Dash Charitable Foundation was established in 1996 as an operating 501(c)(3) foundation. In 2019, the foundation changed to a non-operating foundation focusing on donating to those working in the field of archaeology. Sites are supported world wide with priority given to those using ground penetrating radar in their research. Applications for grant requests are due by May 1st of each year. Please fill out the “contact us” form for more details of how to apply.
