Ta-wer Egyptology

Ta-wer Egyptology is run by Paul Whelan and Jane Hamilton.

We specialise in organising new and interesting one day Egyptology courses and lectures in London. Paul is an experienced lecturer, having taught courses in Reading and Oxford as well as speaking at various international conferences.

Everyone is welcome to attend, but some background knowledge of Egyptian history and culture would be useful for the full day courses! Our new Saturday morning short courses are suitable for all.

We look forward to seeing old friends again and meeting new enthusiasts.
