The Egypt Exploration Society remains the leading UK organisation carrying out archaeological fieldwork and research in Egypt today, and thanks to the contributions made by members and donors we have been able to support a number of projects in the field this year. The Current British Archaeology in Egypt conference showcases these projects, providing an opportunity to meet field directors and their teams, and to hear the latest news from these sites.
Over the course of the day attendees will hear from project leaders, while others will be represented by a series of posters on display around the venue. As always, there is provision of time for networking with others working in Egypt and those that have supported this work.
