I know lots of you envy my chance to attend lectures and would love to learn more. All over the world there are lots of Egyptology Societies who hold lectures and events and welcome new members. I would be quite happy to publicise any of these just send me an email. I have set up a new label so you can find them on the blog. Notice on this one there is a lecture by Dr Elena whose tomb and lecture I have reported on so even in the depths of the UK you can find out the latest.

Hi I live in the UK and spend a lot of time in Egypt too. I have attended lots of really good Egyptology lectures in the UK.
