ANNOUNCING AELT 6 (UCL) TO BE HELD ON 22 NOVEMBER 2014
The purpose of AELT is to bring together text-based researchers in Egyptology in the UK and to provide a forum for sharing and discussing ideas, problems and issues.
The intention is to highlight work in progress: we do not aim to publish papers from the workshop, but to provide an opportunity for colleagues to present their research at a working stage with publication taking place elsewhere.
