EES 2010 Centenary Awards

Egypt Exploration Society

The Society is pleased to announce that the 2010 Centenary Awards for early-career researchers are being given to three very varied projects: to Jennifer Cromwell to study and publish non-literary Coptic texts in Copenhagen, to Kenneth Griffin to study The Book of the Dead from the Tomb of Karakhamun (TT223) and to Hélène Virenque to research Naville's early correspondence. Many congratulations to all three!

I am particularly pleased about Jenny Cromwell's award, having watched and taken notes on her simply excellent seminar at the EES earlier this year, Coptic Thebes: Life in the 7th and 8th Centuries.
