Nowadays, at a time where we often and iconsiderately speak of egyptology, the scientifics have at heart to well inform the always growing public, to do so,they are sharing their discoveries on ancient Egypt.
To this aim, the society proposes to its members three reunions per year during which, French or Foreign specialists present their works and new discoveries. Following each of these reunion, a report with a complete text of all communications will air in the « Bulletin de la Societe francaise d'egyptologie(BSFE).
Nontheless, the SFE publishes each year the « Revue d'egyptologie ». Known worldwide, this scientific publication offers articles written by researchers from all over the world.
Finally, depending on the agenda, the SFE proposes to its adherents, visits of exhibitions and museums dedicated to the egyptian civilisation and guided tours by first class specialists.
