Egyptian Archaeology is our full-colour magazine, published in spring and autumn, reporting on current excavations, surveys and research in Egypt. Most issues run about eight to ten main articles, written by Egyptologists, archaeologists or curators working in the field, showcasing the work of the EES as well as of other researchers and field directors. Each issue also has a regular ‘Bookshelf’ feature, with reviews of popular Egyptological books, and the ‘Digging Diary’, which summarises some of the many archaeological projects happening in Egypt.

Full members of the EES receive Egyptian Archaeology for free twice a year. So why not make sure you’ll never miss an issue by joining the Society and supporting our work in Egypt?
