When will I recieve my membership magazine?

Egyptian Archaeology is our full-colour, biannual magazine sent to members as part of their subscription. The magazine reports on current excavations, surveys and research in Egypt, showcasing the work of the EES as well as of other missions and researchers. New members recieve a free issue of the latest Egyptian Archaeology magazine soon after they join us. Otherwise, members should recieve two copies of the magazine per year, in March and October. Please bear in mind that international delivery can lead to later dates of arrival. Please contact us if you believe you are missing an issue. 

Do members receive the JEA?

The Journal of Egyptian Archaeology (JEA) is a leading international journal for the publication of Egyptological research. The Journal publishes scholarly articles, fieldwork reports, and reviews of Egyptological books. JEA is available to EES members at a heavily discounted rate when purchased as an add-on to their subscription, where you can choose to have a print copy and/or online access.

How do I renew my subscription?

You can follow the links available on our membership pages here. Our membership year runs from 1st April to 31st March and you will be asked to renew during March, regardless of when you join in the year. If you joined after 1st January, then we usually count this toward the next subscription year, effectively giving you three months free!

If you are UK-based, you can set up a Direct Debit to automatically pay your subscription each year on 1st April. Add a payment method to create a recurring payment for stress-free membership renewals!
