The Society’s W.Y. Adams Library

The core of the Society’s library is formed of the books and offprints once belonging to our first president, Sir Laurence Kirwan, and to our Honorary President, Professor William Y. Adams. Amongst its most useful assets is a full run of Kush, the journal of the Sudan Antiquities Service, and many volumes of Sudan Notes and Records.

The main library is housed in the Society’s office in the Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan at the British Museum in London. The Society also maintains a branch library within the office of the Section Française de la Direction des Antiquités du Soudan in the National Corporation for Antiquities and Museums’ premises in Khartoum.

To visit the main library

The main library is available to members of the Society by prior appointment with the honorary secretary.
