Study Days

In addition to our monthly lectures we also run a study day each year.  These are one-day events (usually held on a Saturday in spring) and are dedicated to a particular theme or area of interest.

In addition to our regular March study day, we are holding an extra study day in May. Details below. If Covid restrictions allow, these will be held at the Longfield Suite, Prestwich. If not they will be held online via zoom.

Our Study Days are open to anyone with an interest in ancient

Egyptian history and culture.
