The next meeting of the Somerton U3A will take place on Friday 26th July 2019.
Somerset author Justin Newland will give a lively, illustrated talk on "Why Ancient Egypt is known as 'The Mother and Father of All Things.'"
Ancient Egypt as the cradle of civilisation and how it still impacts our lives today.
Justin will also reveal how this period of history inspired his debut novel, The Genes of Isis, an epic fantasy and supernatural thriller set under Ancient Egyptian skies; the story is a weave of two threads: the Ancient Egyptian myth of Isis
and Osiris and the story of the flood in the Book of Genesis.
Monthly meetings normally take place on the fourth Friday of each month at the Edgar Community Hall, Somerton starting at 10am with coffee (30p) and chat.
After any notices the main event begins at 10.30am and finishes by 12 noon latest.
Meetings are free for members, visitors £1.50 each
