The Tiny Egypt Society community pages: an overview

The Tiny Egypt Society has its own collection of community pages, which are exclusive to active, paying members of the Society. Why? Well, I originally wanted to set up a Patreon page so people could support Tiny Egypt. Then, I looked at the fees I’d have to pay (and other similar sites), and decided that…

Tiny Egypt Society news: 🌐 members’ website area goes into development

As you will remember, a couple of weeks ago, I emailed you to tell you I was adding a members’ area to my website with a link to a short survey, asking you what you’d most like to be able to do within that member-exclusive area.

Tiny Egypt Society news: mammoth sessions at the Garstang

On the 2 December, I spent the day in the Garstang Museum’s teaching room, looking through some of the old card catalogue. Although the museum has a database of objects, not every record is detailed or has a photograph of the object yet. (The museum has literally tens of thousands of objects, and transferring details from a card index to a computer database is a lengthy project they’re working on.)

Tiny Egypt Society news: Exploring Bolton’s cabinets

A big welcome to the Tiny Egypt Society, and to this first Society update.

Today’s news is tell you about yesterday’s trip to Bolton.

Before I turn up at a museum with my camera and start photographing objects, I need to know what, exactly, it is I’m going to photograph. So I spent a few hours at Bolton’s storerooms yesterday, looking for artefacts to add to my list.
