Newsletter #4: A new season and lots of new events

Dear Friends and fellow Egyptophiles,

Summer’s almost gone, as The Doors once sang, and we’ve all found ourselves subjected to some of the worst rain this country’s seen in 30 years; I find myself hankering after the substantially sunnier climes of our beloved Kemet. I do hope this newsletter finds you all in a suitably unflooded situation!

In the world of Egyptology, the autumn sees the new season of society lectures kick-off, so you can wave goodbye to the hole left by the summer holidays and find a wonderful selection of lectures in the Events section of the newsletter.

Life from inside a brand new society, tiny tripods and a wet squeeze

Yes, it’s that time again – our quarterly newsletter is making its rounds, and this time we get to hear from TheBES, the newest society in the region, as well as our own newsletter editor, Julia, about her trip to the recent Manchester Ancient Egypt Society study day.

Click here to read the newsletter. It’s well worth a read…and if you know of anyone else who’d be interested in it, please do pass it on.

We’re always on the lookout for article submissions, either from society/museum organisers or from members and attendees, so please do get in touch with Julia at if you have something you’d like to write about.
