Southampton Ancient Egypt Society (SAES) was founded in 1998 to meet the desire of local people to learn more about and discuss Egyptology. The aims of our Society are to promote the study and public dissemination of the culture, religion, art, language, life and death in Ancient Egypt. Monthly meetings take place at Oasis Academy, Lord's Hill, Southampton. Lectures are given by top class speakers covering history, archaeology, developments in modern Egypt and news items from around the Egyptological world.
The 'News' section of this website is regularly updated. Please visit often!
DUE TO THE CURRENT RESTRICTIONS, NO MEETINGS ARE BEING HELD AT OASIS ACADEMY. TALKS TO BE VIEWED 'ON LINE' ARE BEING ARRANGED. SEE THE PANEL (LEFT) AND NEWS SECTION FOR THE NEXT 'VIRTUAL' MEETINGS, FOR YOU TO VIEW ON YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICE.
If you live away from Southampton, even if you are not in the UK, you can view and listen to one of our virtual talks. Please visit the 'News' section and the 'Join Us' sections of this website.
Members and visitors are warmly welcomed to our talks, study days and classes. If you are interested in joining us, you are welcome to come along to any meeting as a guest first. Membership fee is adjusted depending on time of year joining.
Our next events are in the panel on the left. The programme of physical meetings is suspended.
Please note that the 2020 / 2021 programme is finalised, but most and maybe all of the meetings will be through Zoom. A programme leaflet will not be issued this season. Details of planned talks are being added to the website, but please remember these may change as the response to the Coronavirus pandemic develops.
