Sergio Alarcón Robledo studied Architecture at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, a MPhil in Egyptology at the University of Cambridge, and a MA in Archaeology at the University of California, Los Angeles. His main area of interest is ancient Egyptian architecture, with a particular focus on Early Bronze Age funerary structures in Egypt. He has taken part of several archaeological missions in Egypt, and has worked with material ranging from the Early Dynastic to the Ptolemaic period. As a member of the Polish-Egyptian Archaeological and Conservation Mission of the Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari (University of Warsaw), he researched the architectural features of the Upper Courtyard. In 2016, he joined the Middle Kingdom Theban Project (University of Alcalá de Henares), for which he co-directs the archaeological works undertaken at the Middle Kingdom tomb of Henenu (TT313). As a member of the German-Italian team working at Zawyet Sultan, Sergio is conducting research on the Early Old Kingdom minor step pyramid, and has surveyed several structures and landscape areas at the site. His work at Harvard explores architectural practice and landscape development in Early Dynastic Saqqara.
