About Us

The society was formed in 2002 by a group of enthusiastic, like-minded people with the aim of appealing to a membership catchment area from the Wirral, Liverpool and the surrounding districts.

We welcome all members of the general public who have an interest in this fascinating period of ancient history.

The society runs a comprehensive programme of eleven monthly lectures over the twelve-month calendar period, to which all members and visitors are welcome
(see ‘Programme’ page for details)

The December meeting is reserved for members only.
Lectures are usually held on the second Monday of the month at
Mayer Hall, The Village, Lower Bebington, Wirral CH63 7PT,
starting at 2 pm, other than in April and September when the meetings are in the evening at 7.30 pm on the first Wednesday of the month; currently, of course, they are online.
We are extremely fortunate to be able to attract distinguished speakers, from museums and universities throughout the UK and, whilst delivering meetings online, we are inviting speakers from across the globe.
Current research is often presented. A lively question and answer session follows and is an enjoyable part of each meeting. Topics range from all periods of Egypt’s glorious past. We also encourage members to visit major exhibitions and attend study days.

We have a small library relevant to Ancient Egypt and the books are available for members to borrow and in addition we also have a selection of books for sale.
