Creatures of the Nile

We have organised a tour of the 'Creatures of the Nile' exhibition at the VG&M. On Thursday 25th July at 11am, Dr Criscenzo-Laycock will be giving a short talk about the exhibition and then will be on hand to answer any questions about the objects.

For those interested, this will be followed by lunch at the Waterhouse Cafe. Depending on numbers, a table will need to be booked.

In addition, Cheryl Tempest is a tour guide at the VG&M so can offer a private tour of the Victoria Building for whomever fancies on the day. The Garstang should also be open, should you wish to maximise your time on the University campus.

Please contact Cheryl at to express your interest in joining the tour, plus whether you would like to join for lunch.

It will feature the Egyptian and Sudanese collections of the Garstang Museum of Archaeology, with additional artefacts on loan from National Museums Liverpool and Manchester Museum.

World Museum Warehouse Store Tour

Dr Ashley Cooke has kindly offered to give a tour and handling session at National Museum Liverpool's  warehouse stores. The focus will be on antiquities acquired from the Wellcome collection as a tie-in to Dr Ken Griffin's talk in September. A date has not yet been fixed, but is likely to be shortly after this Zoom lecture.

Due to the nature of the building, please can you let Cheryl Tempest know at if this is something you would be interested in as a maximum of eight people can be accommodated in the session.

Book Sales

At each meeting in the Mayer Hall we have a selection of Egyptology books for sale, at very reasonable prices.

There is also a selection of wonderful items produced by Steve Tasker.
All Profits to WAES.
