Birmingham Egyptology

Forum Sessions for 2018-2019

Birmingham Egyptology’s Forum sessions will continue this term, beginning on Friday 12th october (5pm-7pm, Room 305, Arts Building)

The first session will focus on Egyptian mythology and its reception in the modern media through popular stories and conspiracy theories, looking both at ancient evidence for mythology and media coverage of ancient Egypt. This includes modern news stories and the methods of reporting on news and theories relating to ancient Egypt such as the recent sarcophagus discovery, as well as the well known theories on Egyptian time travel, aliens, and more! Please do come along with your favourite myth about ancient Egypt, whether based on fact or fiction, for discussion.

Refreshments will be provided. We will also share our plans for the term including new events, plans for the Symposium, and much more to come!

We hope to see you there.
