Lecture Programme

Cleopatra and Caesarian at Dendera

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 programme for the 2021-2022 season which includes our annual study in March and an extra study day in October!

 We are planning to hold a mix of venue and Zoom lectures from September. 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.

Non-members welcome – tickets £5 via Eventbrite Events will be listed here later this summer.
