Trial access to Al-Ahram Digital Archive

By Sarah Gilmore, on 16 June 2022

UCL has trial access to Al-Ahram Digital Archive from East View until 10th July 2022.

Al-Ahram Digital Archive contains all obtainable published issues from 1875.

Founded in 1875, Al-Ahram (الأهرام‎, “The Pyramids”) is one of the longest-running newspapers in the Middle East. It has long been regarded as Egypt’s most authoritative and influential newspaper, and one of the most important newspapers in the Arab world, with a circulation of over 1 million. Prior to 1960, the newspaper was an independent publication and was renowned for its objectivity and independence. After being nationalized by President Nasser in 1960, Al-Ahram became the de facto voice of the Egyptian government and today the newspaper is managed by the Supreme Council of Press.
