British Egyptology Congress

The British Egyptology Congress provides a platform for researchers to present their ongoing projects and discoveries to a broad audience of peers and the interested public through presentations or posters.

Presentations can be given by scholars at all levels of their career including independent researchers with no current affiliation. Presenters do not need to be British or be based in Britain to present.

The Congress is held by the Egypt Exploration Society every two years in collaboration with a British host institution. Applications to host BEC will be advertised on the EES website in the intervening years immediately following a Congress.

In 2020, the Fifth British Egyptology Congress will be hosted by Durham University (hence the choice of banner image). Due to the disruption caused by COVID-19, the Congress will be held online over September and October 2020. Details of the event can be found using the pages on this website.

ANNOUNCEMENT: As several presenters were unable to present during September and October, 'BEC5: Take 2' is scheduled in early December. Details can be found on these webpages.
