SITE LAST UPDATED 22nd March 2020

Ankh was born from the interest of students and others, who wanted to have a central society for the furtherance of the study of ancient Egypt, and other ancient civilisations.

Ankh was founded in 2009 in Herne Bay, Kent, UK and now regularly holds meetings in the Herne Bay and Canterbury areas, which are attended by people from across Kent.

Promoting an interest in the ancient world, it is a society that encompasses people with a wide range of knowledge and / or interest in Egypt – from the holidaymaker that wishes to learn more about Egypt, to those whom have an academic interest in Egyptology.

A series of lectures, discussions, visits and classes take place throughout the year and new members are always welcome. Our lecturers are well known on the circuit, being Egyptologists, archaeologists, scientists and tutors from both the local area as well as renowned universities.

Why join Ankh?

  • Opportunity to meet like-minded people who are interested by this ancient civilisation.
