2022 Celebrations

In 2022 Egyptology celebrates two major anniversaries: the decipherment of Egyptian hieroglyphs 200 years ago, and the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun 100 years ago.

CIPEG is gathering information about any kind of event that celebrates these anniversaries, e.g. exhibitions, conferences and lectures, logging them in one document. You can help us to update this record by adding your contributions to this live document, or emailing your institution's proposed events to Melanie Pitkin: melanie.pitkin(AT)sydney.edu.au.


CIPEG Survey for the Egyptological Museum Community

At the end of 2020, following a difficult year for the world with the COVID-19 pandemic, CIPEG took the opportunity to reflect on its role and purpose, and how we might be able to better support the museum Egyptological community. As part of this, we developed a survey aimed at current CIPEG members, and non-members. 152 participants (58 members and 94 non-members) took part in the survey and a summary of the results are shared with you here. We look forward to keeping you up-to-date with the new changes and welcome any further comments or suggestions you may have.
