From the Society's founding in 1882 objects discovered on excavations were distributed to those museums and collections that financially aided our work in Egypt. Anyone visiting Egyptological collections around the UK has no doubt already seen many artefacts discovered on EES digs. Following the success of last year's trips we will be running them again in 2015! Curators and museum staff will give talks and guides of their collections as well as explaining how they relate to the EES excavations. Spaces are limited on these trips so book early to avoid disappointment.
