Dr Anna Garnett brings her expertise in Egyptian archaeology and a track record of academic and popular research and publication to the Board of Trustees. Anna has over a decade of experience in international fieldwork projects in Egypt and Sudan, including her EES grant-funded work at Amarna from 2015-17 as a ceramicist. Anna acquired her PhD from the University of Liverpool in 2018 focusing on sacred landscapes in Egypt’s Eastern Desert.

Anna has been involved in Society education and training programmes since 2015 and was also instrumental in our first Egyptian Archaeology Skills School during which she educated students about ceramics and small finds recording and analysis.

In 2017 Anna was appointed Curator of the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology and would look forward to using her skills in engagement to benefit the Society’s archive and library collections and particularly in encouraging their use by researchers and students.
