MAES organises an annual lecture programme for members and non-members alike.  Usually held on the second Monday of each month, most lectures are given by well-known Egyptologists from the UK and overseas.

Here’s our AMENDED programme for the 2021-2022 season.

 We have a mix of venue and Zoom lectures across the season. In case of further Covid restrictions, venue lectures will go ahead via Zoom

Online lectures are free to MAES members who will receive a link via email. Venue lectures are £3 on the door for MAES members and £5 for guests. All welcome!

Guest tickets for our online lectures are £5 via Eventbrite
