Egyptian Archaeology 37

Egypt Exploration Society

Mine turned up this morning. I haven't had the chance to do more than flip through it but the photographs from North Dashur and from the Book of the Dead exhibition are stunning.

Egyptian Archaeology 37 (Autumn 2010) has just been published and copies are now being mailed to EES Members. The layout of EA has been changed with this issue to include pages at the front of the magazine which showcase the Society’s activities, including a report on EES tours to Egypt and Sudan, a summary and photographs from BEC3, news of the appointment of our Development Director, Victoria Perry, and photographs from recent events at Doughty Mews. Appreciations of the lives of Ian Mathieson, Win Exley and Lydia Barker are also included in this new section.

The main articles are:
