This is the 20th November 2017 updated edition of the website. The website editing software has now been changed, so the 'News' page may be updated currently. Once again, Southampton Ancient Egypt Society is very grateful to Gerry Palmer of Thames Valley Ancient Egypt Society for his time and skill in finding a new editing software package. Any ideas and contributions for additions to the site will be gratefully received.

 Latest: The September and October editions of Hotep have been added with the new software. Hotep is under the 'About Us' tab and then under 'Hotep Newsletter.' Our next meeting, is Ian Trumble on 09th December 'Egypt in Bolton.' This is the fourth full meeting of the 2017 - 2018 season. Doors open at 13.30 as usual. Further details are in the 'Programme' section of the website.

'Hoodies,' sweatshirts and polo shirts are selling well. Several members have worn them at recent meetings. They all have a woven 'Southampton Ancient Egypt Society logo,' and are available to order. Colours are white, navy or sky blue. Please see Annette at any future meeting.
