The Institute is proud to share photographs from our first successful museum tour which took place at the Royal Ontario Museum on Sunday, February 28th 2016. It was led by Egyptologist Dr. Antoine Hirsch and included an in depth explanation of the contributions made by University of Toronto’s Near and Middle Eastern Studies Department to the collection and preservation of the various artifacts currently on display. The next tour of the ROM will be a fund-raising event, with the help of the Rotary clubs Toronto, by the end of April 2016. The tour will be led by Professor Donald B. Redford. The Institute will also be leading tours at the site of Ancient Mendes at Tell er-Rub’a, Egypt in the coming months. Please stay tuned for more exciting news about Canadian Egyptology.

All photographs were generously donated for use by esteemed photographer Mr. Gordon Weiske of Canoed Entertainment
