King's College London and University College London
Current Research in Egyptology (CRE) is a postgraduate conference set up to facilitate research and promote bonds between British and international universities worldwide who are conducting research in Egyptology, Egyptian Archaeology, or any other related field of study.
The students at the University of Oxford originally established CRE in 2000. Since then, the conference has become an annual event typically hosted by major centers for Egyptological research in the UK.
Hosts for the conferences have included University College London, University of Cambridge, University of Birmingham, University of Liverpool, and many others which can be seen here in the Past Conferences. CRE XV is the first CRE to be awarded jointly to two different universities and is the first CRE for King’s College London and the second time for UCL.
