The Plymouth & District Egyptology Society (PADES) is a small friendly group of people who share an interest in all aspects of life in Ancient Egypt. The Society started in 1999 and has enjoyed growing membership over the last 12 years. The Society currently has about 50 members who come from all over Cornwall, Devon, Avon and Somerset.
We normally meet on the first Saturday of each month from September to April. We also aim to have one or more day schools a year. Members enjoy reduced fees for lectures and day schools, visits both within the UK and abroad as well as social events. Past trips include Paris, Berlin, Turin, Leiden, Madrid and London. We also have a flourishing informal discussion group which looks at a wide range of subjects within Egyptology.
At present we meet for Saturday afternoon lectures and day schools in the The Quaker House, 74 Mutley Plain, Plymouth, PL4 6LF.
The Society is well established and respected amongst the academic community and we have hosted lectures from many of the UK’s leading Egyptologists and Archaeologists currently excavating in Egypt. We have also held 8 very successful days schools with Joyce Tyldesley and Stephen Snape, David Rohl, Rosalind and Jac Janssen, Bob Partridge and Peter Phillips, Aidan Dodson, Charlotte Booth, Jim Wearing and last season with Lucia Gahlin.
The Society has also donated financial support to the ‘Tell Edfu’ excavation.
Non-members are very welcome to attend lectures and day schools.
Membership fees from £20, less for students. Call Janis Naylor 01752 228616 for fees information.
