The Egyptology Society of Egypt has issued its latest news update (no.22, November 2007). As usual they have generously shared some of their experiences with the rest of the world. This issue includes a summary of some of their recent lectures and includes a short and positive review of the Tutankhamun exhibition. The lectures summarized are:
  • The Columns of Egypt, by Peter Phillips
  • Bristol’s New Egyptian Gallery, by Sue Giles
  • The Sphinx Revealed: A forgotten record of pioneering excavations by Dr Patricia Usick
There's a lovely photograph of a watercolour the Egyptian collection in Bristol's City Museum and Art Gallery in 1834.
