The lectures discuss a brief history of the organisation in addition to photography in archaeology.
Some of us feel like we're trapped in a tomb. But maybe we just need a change of perspective by learning a little more about people who actually HAVE been in tombs. The Egypt Exploration Society (EES) - the UK's biggest crowdfunding organisation for training, fieldwork and research in the field of Egyptology - are offering free online lectures by expert Egyptologists! The organisation was founded in 1882 and has since explored more than 150 different sites in the Nile Valley and published over 350 volumes of research.
One of the first free lectures begins on March 25th, and looks at photography in archaeology and their 2019 project of rehousing over 5000 glass-plate negatives from excavations at Abydos and Armant. The other lecture - conducted by the director of the organisation - covers a brief history of the society, starting from its origins all the way to its centenary in 1982. This lecture will take place on March 24th and March 26th.
