The first formal meeting of the Manchester Ancient Egypt Society was held in March 1987 making 2012 our Silver Jubilee. As such we are one of the longest running Egyptology Societies in Great Britain (apart from the Egypt Exploration Society, which had a head-start of over 100 years!).
As well as our monthly meetings and study days we also arrange occasional visits to museums with Egyptology collections, both in Britain and abroad, and from time to time, we organise our own trips to Egypt, to study and experience the country at first hand.
One of the core activities of the Society is to raise money for good causes relating to Egyptology. Our monthly raffles and our book auctions allow the Society to make regular financial donations to the world of Egyptology and thus play an important role in the study of this incredible civilisation.
If you wish to come to one of our meetings, all you have to do is simply turn up on the night.
Our study days are open to anyone but you do need to book first. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at info @ maes.org.uk
