Egyptology

Egyptology has a long and proud history at Liverpool. Since its creation in 1906, the Department has grown in size and reputation and we are now the largest grouping of research active Egyptologists in the UK.

Our research covers a distinctively wide range in which both archaeology and language are used to enhance our understanding of ancient Egyptian culture, history, religion, economy, and much more.

Our degrees are extensively developed for digital-learning support and enhanced by practical, hands-on experience, not least in our own Garstang Museum with its significant collection of Egyptian artefacts, particularly from John Garstang's excavations in the early 20th century). Our Sydney Jones library has an extensive Egyptology collection that dates back over half a century.
