Our next meeting will be on Monday 13th January, when Dr Chris Naunton will talk to us about the lost tombs of Egypt.
Where are the tombs of Imhotep, Nefertiti, Alexander the Great and Cleopatra? All were buried in Egypt but despite the best efforts of some of the greats in archaeology, none of them have been found. But there are clues and in some cases archaeologists are actively searching for them. This talk explores what we know, and asks what the chances are of finding any of those missing tombs.
Dr Chris Naunton is an Egyptologist, writer and broadcaster. He has degrees from the universities of Birmingham and Swansea, has worked in the field in Abydos and Thebes, was Director of the EES from 2012-16 and President of the International Association of Egyptologists. He has appeared in several TV documentaries and his first book, “Searching for the Lost Tombs of Egypt” was published in 2018. His second work, “Egyptologists’ Notebooks” will be out later in 2020.
Chris will be bringing copies of his book to sign and sell so save up your Xmas prezzie money!
