Hilary Wilson. Chairman.
Society founder, author and regular speaker to the Society.

I was for some years an Associate Lecturer in Maths and Archaeology with the Open University. Since the 1990s I have taught Egyptology courses for the University of Southampton Continuing Education Department, the WEA and other adult learning groups as well as introducing Ancient Egypt to primary school pupils in the guise of Setkemet, 'The Egyptian Lady'. I have written several books on Ancient Egypt and I am a staff contributor to Ancient Egypt Magazine. Recently retired (almost) from teaching Mathematics, I devote my leisure time to writing Egyptian-themed fiction.
