The Ancient Egypt group is dedicated to the study of pharaonic Egypt from the Predynastic Age to the absorption of the Nile valley into the Roman Empire in 30 BC. Over the course of the project, we will be covering many different aspects of Egyptian civilisation, some of which you won’t be able to read about in popular books on the subject. But, don’t let that put you off! The presentations will be easy to follow and full of wonderful visuals … so you can just relax and let the magic of Egypt and the rest of the Ancient World wash over you like the gentle waters of the River Nile.

The group is led by one of the world’s best-known Egyptologists – writer, TV presenter, renowned international lecturer, historian and archaeologist, David Rohl, who has spent more than fifty years exploring the landscapes of the ancient Near East – from the high mountain valleys of Eden in mythical Persia to the vast barren deserts bordering ancient Kemet (the ‘Black Land’ = the Nile valley). He is best known for his internationally acclaimed TV documentary series ‘Pharaohs and Kings’, ‘In Search of Eden’, ‘The Egyptian Genesis’, and as a leading figure in the multi-award-winning cinema documentary ‘Patters of Evidence – The Exodus’. David has also written five bestselling books translated into twelve languages.

David Rohl, presenter of Pharaohs and Kings (Channel Four and Discovery Channel 1995).The group meets every third Monday of the month at the Salon de Actos, in la Senieta theatre, Moraira, starting at 10.30am and finishing around midday. Each meeting begins with a seventy-minute (or so) presentation on the day’s subject, employing David’s stunning visuals and informative graphics. Group members are then encouraged to participate in a Q & A discussion for the remaining fifteen minutes of the session.

Due to David’s international lecturing, archaeological research and TV commitments, there may be occasions in the year when he will be away and the lecture is postponed to the following month. However, confirmation of each lecture will be notified to all members, approximately one week before the meeting, giving the lecture title and a short explanation of the subject.

The monthly talks are not always entirely restricted to Egypt, since David will be throwing in the occasional lecture on the history and archaeology of the Old Testament, the ‘Heroic Age’ of Bronze Age Greece, the Minoan bull-leaping culture of Crete, the warlike Hittites of Anatolia (modern Turkey), and the ancient civilisations of Mesopotamia (modern Iraq and Syria), as well as some ‘specials’ on completely different but nevertheless fascinating topics such as the legendary epic tale of the Trojan War and the Romano-Spanish traditions surrounding the Sangreal (‘Holy Grail’).

David Rohl, presenter of Pharaohs and Kings (Channel Four and Discovery Channel 1995).The group meets every third Monday of the month at the Salon de Actos, in la Senieta theatre, Moraira, starting at 10.30am and finishing around midday. Each meeting begins with a seventy-minute (or so) presentation on the day’s subject, employing David’s stunning visuals and informative graphics. Group members are then encouraged to participate in a Q & A discussion for the remaining fifteen minutes of the session.

Due to David’s international lecturing, archaeological research and TV commitments, there may be occasions in the year when he will be away and the lecture is postponed to the following month. However, confirmation of each lecture will be notified to all members, approximately one week before the meeting, giving the lecture title and a short explanation of the subject.

The monthly talks are not always entirely restricted to Egypt, since David will be throwing in the occasional lecture on the history and archaeology of the Old Testament, the ‘Heroic Age’ of Bronze Age Greece, the Minoan bull-leaping culture of Crete, the warlike Hittites of Anatolia (modern Turkey), and the ancient civilisations of Mesopotamia (modern Iraq and Syria), as well as some ‘specials’ on completely different but nevertheless fascinating topics such as the legendary epic tale of the Trojan War and the Romano-Spanish traditions surrounding the Sangreal (‘Holy Grail’).

The Ancient Egypt group is dedicated to the study of pharaonic Egypt from the Predynastic Age to the absorption of the Nile valley into the Roman Empire in 30 BC. Over the course of the project, we will be covering many different aspects of Egyptian civilisation, some of which you won’t be able to read about in popular books on the subject. But, don’t let that put you off! The presentations will be easy to follow and full of wonderful visuals … so you can just relax and let the magic of Egypt and the rest of the Ancient World wash over you like the gentle waters of the River Nile.

The group is led by one of the world’s best-known Egyptologists – writer, TV presenter, renowned international lecturer, historian and archaeologist, David Rohl, who has spent more than fifty years exploring the landscapes of the ancient Near East – from the high mountain valleys of Eden in mythical Persia to the vast barren deserts bordering ancient Kemet (the ‘Black Land’ = the Nile valley). He is best known for his internationally acclaimed TV documentary series ‘Pharaohs and Kings’, ‘In Search of Eden’, ‘The Egyptian Genesis’, and as a leading figure in the multi-award-winning cinema documentary ‘Patters of Evidence – The Exodus’. David has also written five bestselling books translated into twelve languages.
