FOURTH BRITISH EGYPTOLOGY CONGRESS (BEC)
THE EGYPT EXPLORATION SOCIETY WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER AND MAES
In September 2018 MAES was involved in organising the recent BEC4 which was a great success with around 200 delegates attending and more than 80 papers presented.
BEC is a platform for researchers to present their ongoing projects and discoveries to a broad audience of peers and the interested public through brief 15-minute presentations and posters. The fourth congress was held at the University of Manchester.
The Congress was co-organised by the University of Manchester KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, Manchester Museum, Ancient Egypt Magazine, and Manchester Ancient Egypt Society in partnership with the
Egypt Exploration Society.
SECRETS OF THE STONES: CURRENT EPIGRAPHIC SURVEYS AND EXCAVATIONS AT THEBES AND ANTINOUPOLIS
In November 2018, we held a fantastic joint study day with KNH Centre at the University of Manchester
Raymond Johnson and Jay Heidel from Chicago House in Luxor presented three excellent lectures on the Epigraphic survey of Medinet Habu, Luxor Temple and in private Theban tombs, reassembling Amarna talatat blocks and current excavations at Antinoupolis.
This study day was made possible thanks to the kind bequest of former MAES member Thelma Nolan-Bradburn.
