The School of Egyptian Civilisation revived

Nevine El-Aref , Friday 5 Aug 2022

The School of Egyptian Civilisation is to be revived at the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation (NMEC) overlooking the Ain Al-Sira Lake in Fustat in Cairo. The school, previously an arm of the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square before it closed two decades ago, will now find a new home at the NMEC.

The school will begin its first classes in September and will target Egyptians and foreign residents who have passion for ancient Egyptian civilisation, allowing them to learn more about this great civilisation and its history, art, religion, culture, and other aspects. It will also help to raise public awareness of ancient Egyptian archaeology more generally.

The school will offer classes over three-month terms meeting twice a week in English and Arabic. Field trips will also be on the curriculum and will be organised for students taking the classes.
