WAMCAES

Departmental resources | Updated 3 years ago

The Western Australian Museum Centre for Ancient Egyptian Studies (WAMCAES) is changing.

The final WAMCAES annual newsletter was printed in July 2014.

In future we will focus on electronic delivery of content.

WAMCAES continues to be a focus for research into the Museum’s small collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts.

We hope to continue offering Western Australians the chance to hear visiting Egyptologists.

Membership

WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING MEMBERSHIPS FOR WAMCAES.

Past members and supporters may find that membership of the Friends of the W.A. Museum presents an exciting alternative.
