Apply now for Bloomsbury Summer School

12 February 2004

Bloomsbury Summer School is open to applications for this year's events, to be held in July 2004.

Places are in high demand, so those interested are advised to book early.

The school offers six one-week courses on the ancient civilisations of Egypt and Mesopotamia. The 2004 programme will examine fields of study such as 'The Nile Delta: Powerbase of Ancient Egypt' and 'The Golden Age: Egypt in the Eighteenth Dynasty'. The 'Hieroglyphs for Complete Beginners' course, running from 12-16 July 2004, will be taught by two of the most celebrated teachers in the field.

The courses offer an intensive programme of learning, and provide expert tuition, first-class facilities and privilege-access classes in UCL's Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology.

Since 1995, Bloomsbury Summer School has consistently presented the finest programme of summer courses on the history and archaeology of Ancient Egypt and the Near East available in Britain. Mr Christopher Coleman, director of the school, said: "The school is quite unlike any other summer school. It provides an informal and friendly environment, excellent facilities, courses of a very high academic standard and teaching of exceptional quality."

The related Bloomsbury Academy will be announcing its 2004 programme of study days on its website very soon.
