July 2018 Newsletter

There's always something happening at NMC, missed out?
Here is a snapshot of what went on this month and what's to come

This month two NMC PhD students, Thomas H. Greiner and Taylor Bryanne Woodcock, are celebrating the one-year anniversary of their blog Nile Scribes devoted to all things ancient Egyptian. Looking for new ways to engage with a diverse community of Egypt enthusiasts, Taylor and Thomas hope to make Nile Scribes an accessible and entertaining portal into ancient Egypt and Egyptological scholarship. From interviewing Egyptologists to introducing various Egyptian museum collections around North America, they aim to keep the general public informed on the latest archaeological discoveries, book releases, and projects.

In addition, the Nile Scribes have made their website available in Arabic through the assistance of their Egyptian colleague Mahmoud Saleh, to engage the Egyptian community.
