Welcome to Egyptology at Christ's

Egyptology has been studied at Christ’s College since 1936, making Christ’s one of the oldest and best-known Egyptology institutions in the UK. While proudly part of the University of Cambridge, Egyptology at Christ’s knows no borders and our researchers have gone on to work on five continents, contributing to some of the discipline’s most illustrious research projects and training hundreds of students. This website tells our story.
