The Forum, held fortnightly, was created for postgraduates and academics studying the Ancient Egyptian civilization or related disciplines, to share ideas and discuss a variety of topics linked to their own research interests. All are welcome to join the meetings, to listen and to participate. Contributors suggest questions or give short introductory presentations which are then debated freely within the group. Future Forum sessions will be advertised on this site and summaries of Forum sessions will be presented on the ‘Previous Sessions’ page. Enquiries regarding Forum activities may be addressed to the Forum Coordinator:
