A-Z of LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Overview

Founded 1987: 'The aim of the Society, as stated in its Constitution, was, and still is, to promote and encourage interest in the History, Archaeology and Cultures of the ancient civilisations of the Near East. The new society was unique in the UK in embracing all countries of the Ancient Near East, including Egypt. We believe it is currently unique in this respect. In the year 2000, the society was renamed the Ancient Egypt and Middle East Society (AEMES), to reflect the approximate 60/40 split between members whose first interest is Ancient Egypt and those whose main interest is another country of the ancient Near East'.

Overview

'Meet on the third Tuesday of every month between September and May. Each season we welcome four guest speakers on Archaeology and four on Egyptology ... Anyone is welcome to attend our meetings ... Talks begin at 7.30 pm and last around an hour. Refreshments are available.'

Overview

’BES was set up in 1990 to further British Egyptian relations outside politics. We hold regular public meetings, lectures, debates and events in the UK in support of this aim and we often contribute grants in support of Egyptian scholars of Egyptian museum specialists and conservators on attachment to the British Museum. Our mission is to exchange ideas and knowledge, and to improve understanding, of the history, culture, arts, music, literature, religions, beliefs and practices of Egypt.‘
