Petrie’s involvement with the EES started during its earliest years, back in 1883, when he was sent out to Egypt’s Delta to excavate at the site of Tanis. While there he undertook an investigation of the eastern Delta and so began a long tradition of Egyptological work which foreshadowed the current EES Delta Survey. Today, tools such as satellite imagery reveal even more about the topography of Lower Egypt and the state of preservation of the Delta's many ancient sites.

All lectures are free and there is no need to book in advance.
