We often think of Nubia, the area from Aswan south to sub-Saharan Africa, as being subservient to its more famous northern neighbor. However, this “Land of Kush” had its own powerful kingdoms and, in fact, ruled ancient Egypt during the 25th Dynasty.
The Egyptian Study Society (ESS) is an organization for people who are interested in Ancient Egypt. ESS welcomes anyone with similar interests to participate. ESS programs include lectures, slide and video presentations, seminars, hands on workshops, and an annual picnic. Well known Egyptologists and knowledgeable ESS members make presentations throughout the year.
You can find the latest lectures by visiting Next Lecture page or the Upcoming Lectures page. You can view our monthly newsletter, The Scribe’s Palette, for current info about ESS and news about Ancient Egypt. You can read the full archive of our journal, The Ostracon.
Our society is a non-profit educational organization based in Denver, Colorado, USA, and is an associate group of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Many ESS members assist the DMNS with exhibitions and projects connected with Egypt.
