As this closure period goes one, we hope that you are all safe and well. We also hope that you're finding plenty of things to keep you physically as well as mentally stimulated.
Over at the Egypt Exploration Society, while our office and library remain closed, we are working hard to provide anyone interested in the unique heritage of Egypt with a programme of FREE lectures.
We're delighted today to be launching a programme of two live lectures per week until mid-June! Myself and Stephanie will be joined by Katharina Zinn, Campbell Price, and Luigi Prada from our Board of Trustees, as well as Chris Naunton and Matt Szafran in a new programme of lectures covering Egyptological archives, geophysical survey at Saqqara, museum collections, material culture, and the reception of ancient Egypt in ancient Rome!
If you're looking for something a little more light-hearted, then you can also sign up to our monthly virtual quiz nights. Join Stephanie and I each month as we test your knowledge of Egyptian and Sudanese history to help raise funds to cover the costs of providing our online event platform.
Registration is limited to 100 attendees per live lecture, so book early to avoid disappointment. Not all lectures are recorded. We'll be adding more virtual events to our website soon, so be sure to check back regularly for further details!
If you've been enjoying our online lectures, why not consider supporting our work so that we can continue to provide this programme during the COVID-19 closure?
Or, if you're not yet a part of our international community supporting and promoting Egyptian cultural heritage, then please consider joining our Society here.
