The talk will explore the links between Egypt and the county that can be traced back to Roman times.

The first accurate account of Egypt's ancient sites was published by a Yorkshireman as early as 1615.

The county also has more pyramids than any other part of England, while also homing the oldest obelisk and full-sized Egyptian temple.

The talk will take place on Friday, October 5, starting at 7:30pm. Admission is free, with donations to St. Mark's Church welcomed.
