Birmingham Egyptology

CRE XVI Oxford – Report

The 16th Current Research in Egyptology conference recently took place in Oxford, from 15th – 18th April, with the theme ‘Travel in Ancient Egypt’. Eleanor Simmance has written a report on this very successful event, including brief summaries of some of the papers, which can be downloaded here: CRE XVI report (PDF will open in a separate window). Thanks go to the organisers and presenters for an enlightening few days.
Birmingham Egyptology even got a mention on two occasions – Gyula Priskin, who discussed Coffin Texts 154-160 as a parallel to the journey of the moon, has published an article on CT 155 in the BE Journal (Vol.1, 2013: http://birminghamegyptology.co.uk/journal/), and Beth Asbury, who gave a history of the Pitt Rivers museum in Oxford and its founder, with particular reference to the Egyptian objects, presented at our first Symposium in 2014 (also published in the Journal: Occasional Publication 1, 2014). Thanks must also go to Beth who introduced a group of delegates to the Museum itself during the following lunch break!
