Cultural Program

The cultural programme of the Society is organized annually in two seasons. The first season usually starts at Oktober, the second at February. It constitutes excursions to the archaeological sites in Alexandria and Egypt in addition to one summer excursion abroad to some countries of heritage. Lectures have been an integral part of the Society’s activities since its foundation and recent years have seen, if anything, an increase in their regularity and a widening of their scope. While the principal area of study has remained the Graeco-Roman period, subjects as varied as “Economic Philosophy before Plato”. “Commerce between Egypt and India in the Islamic Era” and “Pyramid Research” have all been addressed. Furthermore, in recognition that history is a continuum, the more recent past has also been successfully tackled through such talk as “The Collection of the Royal Jewellery Museum” and “The Turkish Town of Alexandria in the 19th Century”.

Lectures are held regularly with the contributions of international figures such as: Bagnall, R. S. (U. S. A.), Hölbl, G. & Bietak, M. (Austria), Bonacasa, N. & Gallo, P. (Italy), Dasjewski, W. A. & Drier, G. & Nöske, H. C. (Germany), Gawolikowski, M., Majcherek, G. & Mislewicz, K. (Poland), Impereur, J-Y., Goddio, F. (France), Snape, S. (England) and Tzalas, H. (Greece).

From Egypt the lecturers were always the most well known scholars such as: Abbadi, M., Abd El-Hamid, S. Z., Abaza, F., Gaballah, A. G., Haikal, F., Hawas, Z., Karara, A., Labib, M., Nur El-Din, A., Radwan, A. and Salem, A.
