Welcome to the online home of the Leicester Ancient Egypt Society. 


 Life size ‘mummy’ at Leicester New Walk Museum Egyptian Gallery

We meet most months at the New Walk Museum in Leicester, where you can expand your knowledge of Ancient Egypt. Hear about the art, architecture, religious beliefs, the intrigues of the Pharaohs and the lives of the ordinary people. Learn about new discoveries from experts in the field.


Egyptologist Barry Kemp plus helper at LAES lecture, in conjunction with New Walk Museums Egyptian Week

The guest lecturers are usually professional Egyptologists with a national or  international reputation, and all are experienced speakers. Their talks are designed for the non expert audience, and so no one need feel that they would be out of their depth at our meetings.

The talks are usually illustrated and the lecturers will normally take questions, which can lead to stimulating debate!  The meetings are informal and usually end with refreshments when members of the audience may have the opportunity of chatting with the guest speaker.

The ‘Schedule’ page lists the speakers for the year, while details and benefits of joining Leicester Ancient Egypt Society are on the ‘Membership’ page. For further details please email LAES@egyptology-uk.com.
