 Saturday 16 September 2023:   

 Hilary Wilson: 'Silver in Ancient Egypt: Sources and Uses.'  

The sun-god Ra was described as having flesh of gold, bones of silver and hair of real lapis lazuli, linking his immortality with the incorruptibility of precious metals and stones. As gold had solar connotations, so silver was the metal associated with the moon but, while being famous for their lavish exploitation of gold, the Egyptians’ use of silver is less well-known. Hilary’s presentation will explore the origins of the pharaohs’ silver, the processes of extraction and the metalworking techniques used to create silver artefacts. She will look at some of the decorative and funerary purposes to which silver was put, from jewellery and amulets to ritual vessels and royal coffins.   

 Hilary Wilson is Founder Chair of the Southampton Ancient Egypt Society, She is a retired Maths teacher and former Open University lecturer. For many years she ran Adult Education courses in Egyptology for the University of Southampton and for WEA groups across Hampshire. She has written several books on popular Egyptology and is a regular contributor to Ancient Egypt Magazine. Hilary was awarded her MA in Egyptology from the University of Manchester in 2022. 

 Saturday 7 October 2023 Face-to-Face Meeting at Itchen College:

 Hilary Wilson: 'The Women In Tutankhamun's Life.'   

 When Tutankhamun became King of Egypt around 1334BC he was no more than ten years old and an orphan. His boyhood had been spent surrounded by some very influential women who would have been responsible for shaping his character and preparing him for his accession to the throne. This talk explores the roles of Tutankhamun’s female relatives and the women of his court in guiding the boy-pharaoh to manhood and kingship.

 Note: As an extra meeting, this lecture is not part of the advance payment scheme. The fee for this meeting will be £5.   


 Saturday  21 October 2023:

The Terry Mason Memorial Lecture - a tribute to our dear friend and founder member, Terry Mason (1938-2016) 

Anna Pearman: ‘Howard Carter's 1922 Discovery of Tutankhamun's Tomb: Its Impact on Archaeology and the Media.’

The news frenzy around the 1922 discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, described as ‘the single most significant media event in archaeology’s history’, introduced Egyptology to a worldwide audience. The resulting massive increase in demand for Egyptology for popular consumption caused archaeologists to adapt the ways they recorded and published their work and interacted with the public. This further fuelled a seemingly insatiable appetite for all things Egyptological which is still felt today. Amongst other lasting effects of the discovery, Anna discusses the developments in archaeological practice, the changes brought about in the position and influence of wealthy private sponsors, and the role of the media in creating the Tutankhamun mythology, including the notorious Curse.  

Anna Pearman  is a retired Humanities Professor, Vincennes University, USA. She studied Egyptology at Chicago University under Dr David Silverman, worked as an artist for the Chicago House Epigraphic Survey under the direction of Dr Lanny Bell and Dr William J Murnane, and met Terry Mason while studying for the MA in Egyptology at the University of Swansea. ‘Being older students nearing retirement age, we became fast friends and remained in touch over the years. I knew of his battle with leukaemia, cheered him on as best I could and felt shattered when he succumbed to his illness. When I visited the SAES website, the inspiration came over me to write and propose a lecture in memoriam.’ This talk is the result of that inspiration.  


Saturday 18 November 2023:

Peter J Brand: 'Abu Simbel: Anatomy of a Temple, Epitome of a Reign.'   

The temples of Abu Simbel serve as a shrine to all aspects of Ramesses II's reign and his legacy down to the UNESCO salvage operation of the 1960s. This talk provides a virtual tour of the most significant architectural, decorative, and textual elements of the temple from the giant statues on its façade, to depictions of Ramesses II’s wars, including the Battle of Kadesh, and his marriage to a Hittite Princess. Imagery reveals how the king showcased his large family, revealing the pecking order among his many wives and children. The divine Ramesses portrayed himself among the paramount gods worshiped in the great temple in the company of the imperial solar deities Amun-Re & Re-Horakhty, and he consecrated the smaller temple of Abu Simbel to the worship of his favoured consort Queen Nefertari as an avatar of Hathor. Since its rediscovery in 1813, Abu Simbel has captured the imagination of a world-wide public fascinated by its grandeur and that of its builder Ramesses II, a.k.a. “the Great.”  

Peter J Brand 
is a Canadian Egyptologist who gained his PhD at the University of Toronto. His dissertation on the monuments of Seti I is considered to be the most comprehensive work on that reign to date. He is currently Professor of Egyptology in the Department of History at the University of Memphis and he is Director of the Karnak Great Hypostyle Hall Project. His primary area of interest is the Ramesside era and his latest book is ‘Ramesses II: Egypt’s Ultimate Pharaoh’ (Lockwood 2023.)    


Saturday  9th and Sunday 10th December 2023:

The Society Study days for 2023 are CANCELLED                 

John Ward and Maria Nilsson: 'Gebel el Silsila Project.'    

Southampton Ancient Egypt Society(SAES) is set to host a study weekend, in partnership with Friends of Silsila, dedicated to one of the largest archaeological sites in the whole of Egypt – Gebel el-Silsila.
Gebel el-Silsila is home to the ancient sandstone quarries used by pharaohs such as Tutankhamun, Ramses II and Akhenaten. Many of the most important sites and monuments in Egypt were built using Silsila sandstone.
The concessions area, where the excavations are taking place, spans 12 square miles and 10,000 years of human activity.
The study weekend, on 9 and 10 December, will cover ten years of digging; sifting; cleaning; drawing; research and a host of amazing discoveries.
The weekend will consist of 13 talks delivered virtually by members of the Gebel el-Silsila team, hosted by project leaders Dr Maria Nilsson and John Ward. Dr Abdel Moneim Saeed, Director General of Aswan and Nubia, will open the proceedings.
Running from 1pm – 5pm, each talk will last for 25 minutes with time for questions at the end. Subjects to be covered include, the cult of the god Sobek, the differences in socio-economic status in trauma and disease patterns, shrines and looters, amongst many others. 

Maria and John are familiar faces having appeared on many National Geographic and Travel Channel documentaries. Together they lead an international team of more than 100 people. Each dig season they are joined on site by their young children Freja and Jonathan. 

The two-day event costs £20 for SAES members and £25 for non-members. Payments can be made through PayPal, bank transfer or cheque. Payment details are available on the SAES website in the News and Join Us sections.

The whole fee, which covers both days, will go to Friends of Silsila. SAES will also make a supplementary donation on behalf of each SAES member who signs up. 

John Ward and Maria Nilsson are currently carrying out archaeological works at the vast New Kingdom necropolis of Gebel el-Silsila, south of Luxor on the River Nile, which includes fascinating historical sites such as a large family cemetery & the recently rediscovered Temple of Kheny. Swedish Archaeologist & Egyptologist Dr. Maria Nilsson has made numerous appearances on international TV, radio & print media to spread the word about the many exciting finds at Gebel el-Silsila, where she currently serves as Mission Director. Maria is a National Geographic Explorer & an Explorers Club Fellow. John Ward is a British archaeologist. Since 2012, John has served as Assistant Director of the dig site of Gebel el-Silsila. John is a familiar face in the world of media. He is a National Geographic Explorer & an Explorers Club Fellow.  


Saturday 16 December 2023: 

Hana Navratilova: 'Walking the Desert - Ancient Visitors to the Pyramids.' 

Around 1400 BC, as now, coming near a pyramid required a desert trip, but it was not a trip into an alien environment. The pyramid fields were closely connected with the great cities of Egypt, prominently Memphis, and a desert necropolis was something of a special 'suburb'. Modern research has only begun to trace paths of the ancient builders, users, visitors, and even demolition crews wandering in the necropolis. The pyramids were the focus of many interests, and many visitors left graffiti – texts and drawings. The 12th dynasty pyramid of Senwosret III at Dahshur continued to attract people throughout the 18th dynasty until its stone was recycled into other royal buildings from the reign of Ramesses II onwards. Both visitors and demolition men scribbled and drew on its walls.  

Dr Hana Navratilova  is a Research Fellow of Harris Manchester College, University of Oxford, and a Lecturer and Senior Tutor in the Department of Classics at the University of Reading. She is also a member of the Ancient World Research Cluster at the Wolfson College. She is involved in several research projects and in teaching. She works on the project 'Who was Who in Egyptology' for the Egypt Exploration Society and is a member of the Egyptian Expedition of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Hana has been involved in the study of Egyptian secondary epigraphy (graffiti) since 2003, and in fieldwork epigraphy in Egypt since 2010.    


 Saturday 20 January 2024:  

Kate Spence: 'Living at Sesebi: an Egyptian Colonial Town in Nubia in the Second Millennium BC.'  

The New Kingdom Egyptian colonial temple-town of Sesebi was constructed in the reign of Akhenaten c. 1350BC and occupied for around 120 years. The site was probably constructed as an administrative centre and a focus for local gold-mining activities. This talk examines archive records from the excavation of housing at the site and considers the lives of those who lived and worked in the town in antiquity.   

Dr Kate Spence is Senior Lecturer in Egyptian Archaeology at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Emmanuel College where she is Director of Studies. Her special area of interest is settlement archaeology and she has published widely on her work at Amarna. Her most recent publications concern her work on the architecture of temples and housing at the Nubian site of Sesebi.    


 Saturday 17 February 2024:  

Roland Enmarch: 'Ex-pats and Vassal Princes: Some Curious International Messengers in the Late 13th Century BC.'   

This talk considers the role played by some of Egypt’s Levantine vassals in international diplomacy during the last decades of the Late Bronze Age Near East (the later 1200s BC).Cuneiform sources from the Assyrian outpost at Tell Huwera in northern Syria detail the hospitality that was offered to foreign delegates such as those conveying Egyptian diplomatic messages to the other ‘great kings’. The close integration of West Semitic language speakers into the Egyptian Levantine communication network is demonstrated by the number of couriers with Semitic names or of Semitic descent, who travelled from Egypt with messages and gifts for Egyptian vassal rulers and garrison commanders. The messengers included a merchant of Amurru and a Sidonian charioteer who may have been engaged in espionage in Assyria on behalf of Egypt.  

Roland Enmarch is Senior Lecturer in Egyptology at the University of Liverpool, specialising in the written culture of Ancient Egypt. His research interests include Egyptian literature, and Egyptian expeditions and resource procurement. A former Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology, his publications include A World Upturned (2008) and Ancient Egyptian Literature: Theory and Practice (2013). He is co-director of the Anglo-French Hatnub archaeological mission. 


Wednesday 28 February 2024 at 1900 UK time:   

 Jen Turner: 'Statues in the sacred space: monuments from the Karnak Cachette.'  

 Jen Turner has made a particular study of statuary of the first millennium BC, as represented by the great collection of objects that were deposited within the temple at Karnak. Including sacred and royal statues as well as images of favoured courtiers and officials, this fantastic collection is now known as the Karnak Cachette. Jen’s talk will explore some intriguing examples of non-royal monuments to showcase stories of individuals from this transitory time of Egyptian history.

Jen Turner studied Egyptology at the University of Birmingham, specialising in elite sculpture from the Third Intermediate Period of Egypt. She is a former Project Curator of Egyptian statues at the British Museum (2020-2023), and recently joined the Griffith Institute at Oxford as Archive Administrator.

Note: As an extra meeting, this lecture is not part of the advance payment scheme. The fee for this meeting will be £5.  


 Saturday 2 March 2024 Face-to-Face Meeting at Itchen College, 1400 UK time: 

John Billman: 'Latest News from Excavations and Conservation at the South Asasif.'   

The Kushite Period has continued in recent years to pose as many questions as answers with even the order of the kings of the twenty-fifth dynasty subject to revision. At the same time, it has become increasingly clear that many aspects of the so-called ‘Saite Renaissance’ have their roots in the preceding Kushite Period. This was demonstrated by reliefs and texts from the tombs of Karakhamun and Karabasken in the South Asasif necropolis. Recent work undertaken by the South Asasif Conservation project illustrates just how significant this necropolis was in the Kushite period, with 4 large tombs and more than 30 smaller ones. From recent work, clues are starting to emerge that the area was a centre for ritual activity, some of which demonstrates connections to Osiris, Abydos and Nubia. This talk will focus particularly on the discoveries and conservation of the last decade of work of the South Asasif Conservation Project.
Meeting fee: £5 (includes refreshments)
Places are limited so pre-booking is essential.

Please contact the Secretary to reserve your place. 

Note: As an extra meeting, this lecture is not part of the advance payment scheme. The fee for this meeting will be £5.  

 Saturday 16 March 2024:  

Juan Carlos Moreno Garcia: 'Silver and the Egyptian Economy.'   

The use of metals in economic transactions was common in ancient Egypt, particularly copper during the third millennium BC, and only gradually silver from the beginning of the second millennium BC. In fact, the increasing integration of Egypt in the exchange networks of the ancient Mediterranean and Near East favoured the diffusion of silver as a means of payment, together with a weight system compatible with those in use in these areas. Scattered references to the use of silver for paying taxes, acquiring goods and storing valuable commodities suggests that part of the wealth produced in Egypt was commercialized and exchanged in markets or otherwise, a practice that induced changes in the productive activities of ancient Egypt, particularly from the Late Bronze Age on. 

Juan Carlos Moreno Garcia  is Director of Research at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) at the University of the Sorbonne. He specialises in landscape and environmental archaeology, with a particular interest in the social, economic and political aspects of land use and the distribution of wealth in ancient Egypt. He advocates a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of ancient cultures, with emphasis on socio-economic history and has published widely on these themes.  

 Saturday 20 April 2024:   

John J Johnston: 'Lost in Time and Space: Unrolling Egypt's Ancient Dead.' 

The frequent souvenir of wealthy travellers, the mummified and bandaged cadavers of ancient Egyptians became an increasingly popular element of entertainment in the salons and lecture theatres of Europe and North America during the mid-nineteenth century. The practice of publicly ‘unrolling’ mummies has been viewed as both a ghoulish spectacle for affluent sensation seekers and an early scientific approach to the nascent discipline of Egyptology. This talk attempts to address this dichotomy by placing the practice within its cultural and academic contexts. 


John J Johnston is a freelance Egyptologist, Classicist, and cultural historian. A former Vice-Chair of the Egypt Exploration Society, he is an Ambassador of the International Society for the Study of Egyptomania. A popular speaker, his research interests encompass mortuary belief and practice, gender and sexuality, Hellenistic and Roman Egypt, the history of Egyptology, and the reception of ancient Egypt in the modern world. In addition to contributing numerous articles to both academic and general publications he has co-edited several books including an anthology of classic mummy fiction, Unearthed (Jurassic London, 2013).He has also made numerous television appearances for BBC, Discovery Science and Channel 5. 


 Saturday 18 May 2024: 

Lucia Gahlin: 'The 7 Laughs of Neith: Ancient Egyptian Creator Goddesses.'  

Ancient Egyptian creation mythology appears to have been dominated by male deities such as Atum, Ptah, Amun, Khnum. Was there a place for creator goddesses in their belief system? In this talk Lucia will explore the extent to which the ancient Egyptians regarded goddesses as creator deities. She will examine the significance of Neith, numbers, speech and laughter in one of the most vivid explanations of how the cosmos came into being. She will also touch upon many of the other connections between creation and the female divine. 

Lucia Gahlin is an Honorary Research Associate at University College London’s Institute of Archaeology, and teaches online Egyptology for the University of Exeter. She lectures far and wide, giving guided tours of museums with Egyptian collections. Over the years Lucia has taught Egyptology for the University of London (Birkbeck College and UCL), where she is most familiar to attendees at the Bloomsbury Study Days and Summer Schools, and is Chair of the Friends of the Petrie Museum. 


Saturday 08 June 2024:  

Hilary Wilson:  ‘The Life and Afterlife of Egyptian Furniture.' 

Ancient Egypt provided a vast source of inspiration for artists and craftsmen at the start of the 19th Century, through published travellers’ accounts and the Napoleonic Survey. This talk explores the influence of images of ancient art and everyday artefacts publicly available in museum collections, on European art and design. The focus will be the humble Egyptian stool, tracing the impact various styles have had and continue to have on modern  furniture design.

Hilary Wilson is Founder Chair of the Southampton Ancient Egypt Society, She is a retired Maths teacher and former Open University lecturer. For many years she ran Adult Education courses in Egyptology for the University of Southampton and for WEA groups across Hampshire. She has written several books on popular Egyptology and is a regular contributor to Ancient Egypt Magazine. Hilary was awarded her MA in Egyptology from the University of Manchester in 2022.  

 Wednesday 19 June 2024:  MEETING CANCELLED, THIS TALK WILL BE GIVEN IN 2024 - 2025.

 Aleksandra Hallmann:  ‘Sartorial Habits in Late Period Egypt.'  

Aleksandra Hallmann provides an analysis of clothing in Late Period Egypt (750 to 332 BC) through a comparison of representations on reliefs, paintings, and statues and the study of preserved textiles, supplemented by references in ancient texts. She shows the historical evolution of clothing revealing the influence of archaism and innovation, as well as how clothes reflect geography, ethnicity, and social roles. It provides some new criteria for dating and interpretation of representations through careful examination of changes in Egyptian fashion. 

Aleksandra Hallmann received a PhD in archaeology from the University of Warsaw, Poland and is currently Assistant Professor of Egyptian Archaeology at the Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures, the Polish Academy of Sciences. As an epigrapher for the Epigraphic Survey of the Oriental Institute, University of Chicago, she is working in the chapels of the God's Wives in Medinet Habu. She is also involved in fieldwork with the French mission at the Osirian chapels in Karnak North, and with the Polish mission at the temple of Hatshepsut in Deir el-Bahari.
