Welcome to the Southampton Ancient Egypt Society website

We are a non-profit organisation that hosts monthly Egyptological themed meetings that are open to members and visitors alike. These meetings are held on Saturday afternoons at Oasis Academy in Lord's Hill and feature an illustrated lecture presented by a speaker from the world of Egyptology.

Whatever your age or level of interest why not come along and see what SAES can offer you?

The Southampton Ancient Egypt Society (SAES) provides an opportunity for enthusiasts to meet up and share their interests in a friendly and informal social setting.

The society was founded in 1998 to meet the growing demands of local people devoted to Egyptological study. Since then, our rapidly growing membership and reputation amongst other UK societies has ensured that we continue to secure lectures from top class speakers.

Our monthly meetings take place at the Oasis Acadeny, Lord's Hill in a comfortable, modern and welcoming environment with disabled access and ample on-site parking. The venue is well served by public transport and within easy reach of the M27. Occasionally we also host themed study days and additional evening 'Members' Meetings' with speakers from our own Society who wish to share their enthusiasm for Ancient Egypt, Egyptology and Egyptomania.

The Society also arranges visits to museums, exhibitions, collections of Egyptological interest and visits to Egypt itself. In the past these have included the British Museum, the Petrie Museum, the Ashmolean Museum, the Pitt Rivers Museum, Eton College, Paris, Turin, Berlin, Madrid, Luxor and Cairo.

Whatever your age or level of interest why not come along and see what SAES can offer you?
