EES Volunteer Julie Tomsova discusses the epigraphic work of the Egypt Exploration Society at the rock-cut tombs of Meir in Middle Egypt. She will present some recently digitised lecture slides taken by Michael Apted during the 1948-50 seasons. These slides were created alongside the below video footage taken during the same period presenting a typical working day at Meir which Apted used to give lectures on his return to the UK. A full transcript also survives in the EES archive allowing us to identify individuals and understand the challenges faced by the team during the project. 

The lecture is open to all, no booking required.
