6 until 11 August

13th International Congress of Egyptologists

During the International Congress of Egyptologists, egyptologists have the opportunity to exchange knowledge and network.

Leiden has been home to egyptology since 1818, when the first large collection of Egyptian antiquities arrived at the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden. In addition, Egyptology has been taught at Leiden University since 1910, making Leiden the perfect place for the thirteenth edition of the International Congress of Egyptologists. During this congress, presentations will take place and participants will be able to network with others in their field.

This congress will be organised by the Department of Egyptology of Leiden University, the Rijksmuseum van Oudheden, the Netherlands Institute for the Near East, and the Papyrologisch Insituut Leiden.
