A-Z of LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Area: Lincolnshire

Category Egypt
Overview

Founded 1987: 'The aim of the Society, as stated in its Constitution, was, and still is, to promote and encourage interest in the History, Archaeology and Cultures of the ancient civilisations of the Near East. The new society was unique in the UK in embracing all countries of the Ancient Near East, including Egypt. We believe it is currently unique in this respect. In the year 2000, the society was renamed the Ancient Egypt and Middle East Society (AEMES), to reflect the approximate 60/40 split between members whose first interest is Ancient Egypt and those whose main interest is another country of the ancient Near East'.
