Welcome to the SSAE

What we do...

The SSAE promotes interest in Egyptology and the history of the ancient Nile Valley civilizations.

The Society was formed in 1992 and is based in the English East Midlands at our two key venues of Nottingham and Chesterfield.

Although we are based in the heart of England, we have members all over the United Kingdom and further afield.

December 2013 - Latest Update: Amenhotep III Temple Project

The Society held a fundraising mini-bazaar on Saturday 7 December in aid of the Amenhotep III Temple Conservation Project on the West Bank at Luxor.

As a result of the generosity of members and guests, the princely sum of £350.00 was raised, in addition to the £1000.00 already contributed.. This will be handed over to Dr Hourig Sourizion, Director of the Project, when SSAE members revisit the site in January next year.

Thanks to everyone for helping to support this very deserving cause.
