CRE XIV Cambridge – conference report

In 2012 the University of Birmingham hosted the thirteenth annual Current Research in Egyptology conference. This year’s annual event (the fourteenth) was hosted by the University of Cambridge, after they placed a successful bid last year.  Seven Birmingham Egyptology members visited the conference and a brief report of the week’s proceedings is provided here by Emily Millward and Carl Graves. CREXIV Report

    It sounds like it was a very successful and interesting conference, and I wish I could have been there! The theme ‘Crossing Boundaries’ is certainly one all historians should consider, especially when it comes to interdisciplinary work in the field; varied approaches towards the evidence from the outset can only result in greater understanding.
    The theme is also very reminiscent of the ‘Connections: Communication in Ancient Egypt’ project which is mentioned earlier on the home page: lots of boundaries were crossed there!
