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 and online. Paul is an experienced freelance researcher and lecturer, having taught courses in Reading and Oxford as well as speaking at various international conferences.
