Dr Joanne Backhouse

Dr Joanne Backhouse        

My lectures focus on the material culture of ancient Egypt, examining what the objects and archaeological remains can reveal about the people who made and utilised them. It is a game of detection and the clues are priceless.

All Egyptology lectures are held online via Zoom. This is an easy to use application which is free to download to any device – PC, iPad, Mac, or phone.

For each online lecture series, a handbook will be provided with suggested readings. No prior knowledge is required, just an inquisitive mind. The Zoom link will be sent out the day before the lecture and again on the morning of the session, as a reminder

July 2022 -   Travels through the provinces of Ancient Egypt
beginning on Friday 1st July at 10.30am. These lectures are also repeated live on a Tuesday evening at 7pm. If you join the course you are welcome to join either or indeed both of the lectures.

Jo will also be teaching some courses at University of Liverpool Continuing Education. See their Link.

University of Liverpool - Continuing Education

We offer an exciting and diverse range of courses, lectures and events. Drawing on the experience and expertise of the University’s academic community.

Egyptology features in the Spring term.

Wirral 3Ls  

Wirral 3Ls  Leisure, laughter & learning

The classes that are available will be slightly reduced in number but we are sure you will appreciate our difficulties here. In addition 3Ls has had no income for nearly 18 months and so regrettably our fees will need to increase. For a full 10 week term, we will need to charge £80 .

The classes will also run for a full 1.5 hours, with no break, allowing time for room cleaning and “pupil” changeover between sessions.

The Manchester Continuing Education Network

The Manchester Continuing Education Network (MANCENT), is a loose network of independent lecturers and students with a firm belief that Continuing Education at a high level should be available to all who want it.
It tries to match interested students with highly qualified and experienced Continuing Education and University lecturers in the Arts and Sciences.

There appears to be no Egyptology courses listed at present.
