Nigel Strudwick's home page

I've been studying Egypt for 30 years now, and have been working out there regularly since 1979. I was a curator in the British Museum from 1998-2009. In 2006-2007 and 2011-2015 I taought in Memphis.

My research interests vary widely between the Old Kingdom and the Late Period, and my current fieldwork is in Luxor. To give you an idea of what I get up to when in Egypt, have a look at my web site devoted to the Tomb of Senneferi (TT99) at Luxor. The publication of the first volume appeared in October 2016!

I got into computing through using IT in research, and I like to think that I'm one of the more computer-literate people in my field of study. Egyptology Resources was the first WWW server set up exclusively for Ancient Egypt.

I'm married to Helen Strudwick who works at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.

Egypt does take up a lot of my spare time, often more than I would like; my other great interest is in Morris Dancing. I dance with the Devil's Dyke Morris Men who are based at Reach near Newmarket, and Helen plays the melodeon. We can sometimes be spotted wearing unusual clothes and bells and possibly waving sticks around in streets and pubs in the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk area.

We live in Whaddon, near Royston. We have a ccollection of teddy bears of all shapes and sizes. We have had cats and horses over the years, but at the moment we are pet-less. We are both very active in the village; Helen is a member of the PCC, runs the choir and plays the organ, while I am a member of the Parish Council and chair the Village Hall and Recreation Ground Trust.
