The Egypt 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 assit the DMNS with exhibitions and projects connected with Egypt.

*Through our Website Join/Renew page
Please be sure to indicate if you do not want to have your name published in the Roster. It will be assumed that it is OK with you to be in the roster unless you indicate otherwise.
This is also to time to order badges. If you don’t have one (or if the dog ate it), please include $10.00 in your renewal, and print exactly how you would like the badge to read (Nicknames? Different last names in a family?)
While Dues are due in January, we do have a grace period through March. However, to avoid being called and e-mailed multiple times, (and to keep the Membership Committee sane), a prompt response would be appreciated.
