Since 1992, the British Museum has hosted an annual keynote lecture presenting the latest research on Egypt and Nubia.

The lecture is accompanied by the Annual Egyptological Colloquium on a related theme, with invited speakers from around the world. This event is held at the British Museum and is an in-person event only.

An overview of past lectures and colloquia provides a glimpse of how research on the cultures of the Nile Valley has developed. Links are provided to recent lectures and colloquia that have been published, whether online or in edited volumes.
