Overview

This programme allows you to immerse yourself in Ancient Egypt. Modules include archaeology, culture, society, history, and language. You will acquire the skills and knowledge needed to understand the material culture and archaeology of Ancient Egypt, as well as a thorough understanding of its original writings and inscriptions from Ancient Egypt.
