Leiden enters bid to be venue of ICE XIII

Leiden Egyptologists propose to hold the XIIth ICE in their hometown in August 2023

In February 2019 the Internation Association of Egyptologists invited bids to host the 13th International Congress of Egyptology in 2023. A committee of colleagues from Leiden University (including the Netherlands Institute for the Near East and the Leiden Papyrological Institute) and the National Museum of Antiquities have composed a bid and submitted their bidbook to the IAE.
