This is the 23rd August 2019 updated edition of the website. Any ideas and contributions for additions to the site will be gratefully received. Please note that the website is being updated for the new season, so there will be a number of changes in the 'Programme Section' over the coming weeks. Please check back often. The task is close to completion!
The next main meeting of the Society is the AGM followed by Hilary Wilson giving 'Hatshepsut: Daughter of Amun, Female Horus,' on 21 September 2019. Doors open at 13.30 for a 14.00 start. The AGM is kept as short as possible! The meeting will finish around 16.30.
The next two meetings are 21 September 2019 and 19 October 2019. After Hilary's talk in September, Wolfram Grajetzki gives 'Looking Like a Goddess, Jewellery in the Middle Kingdom' in October.
There have been problems with the Society email address. A new address has now been obtained - firstname.lastname@example.org
The old email address still works, and will be monitored from time to time. However, the new email@example.com is now the best way to contact Southampton Ancient Egypt Society electronically. Telephone and postal address remain the same.
The February through April editions of Hotep have been added to the website. Hotep is under the 'About Us' tab and then under 'Hotep Newsletter'. The February edition will be added later this month.
Hoodies,' sweatshirts and polo shirts are selling well. Several members have worn them at recent meetings. They all have a woven 'Southampton Ancient Egypt Society logo,' and are available to order. Colours are white, navy or sky blue. Please see Annette at any future meeting.
