The Board of Trustees are delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Cédric Gobeil, of the Institut français d’archéologie orientale in Cairo, as the new EES Director to succeed Dr Chris Naunton.

Dr Gobeil is a distinguished international scholar, currently Director of the French archaeological mission at the New Kingdom workmen’s village of Deir el-Medina, and an adjunct professor at the Université du Québec, Montreal, Canada.

Dr Gobeil will take up his post in early October, working closely with Dr Naunton and the Trustees to ensure a smooth transition.
