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.

If you share our love of Ancient Egypt - do please join us...

Would you like to own a piece of the Society's history?

Following extensive consultations with members, the Society's Committee has, with regret, decided to discontinue its book lending service.

The Book Library was well-used and appreciated in the Society's early years but, with ever new sources of global information now available, usage has been steadily declining for some considerable time.

The Committee has agreed that members should have the first opportunity to purchase items before the remainder of the collection is disposed of.

On Saturday 26 April, members will be able to reserve items for collection at the 7 June lecture.

An up to date listing of the book stock can be downloaded below.

The Society arranged a very special event, held on Saturday 12 July at Chesterfield Library. There were lectures by two distinguished speakers:

Barry Kemp - speaking on "Excavations at Amarna" and

Thanks to everyone who helped organise and support the event.
