Who we are

AEMES was born in 1987 and expanded from the small band of class attendees and local interested people into a national society of around 100 members.

The aim of the Society, as stated in its Constitution, was, and still is, to promote and encourage interest in the History, Archaeology and Cultures of the ancient civilisations of the Near East.
