NINO Library celebrates Egyptology jubilee year 2022

As our library visitors certainly know, Egyptology celebrates two milestones this year. Many new publications have appeared connected to the decipherment of Egyptian hieroglyphs (Jean-François Champollion, 1822) and the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun (Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon, 1922). We invite you to come and study them with us!
