Egyptology and Assyriology Study Day at Christ's College

Egypt and Mesopotamia (modern Iraq; ancient Sumer, Assyria and Babylon) bequeathed to posterity some of the most fascinating remains from all of the ancient world. 

At Cambridge, Egyptology and Assyriology are based in the Department of Archaeology where you can study the archaeology, cultures and languages of one or both of these fascinating ancient civilisations in all three years as an undergraduate student.

Join us for our Egyptology and Assyriology Study Day for prospective undergraduates, kindly hosted by Christ's College, on Friday 7 February 2020 to discover more about these subjects at Cambridge through lectures, language and practical sessions.
