Professor of Egyptology, Department of Ancient History

"History is not facts, it's an attempt to reach the truth…and that's what we are trying to do at Macquarie."

"We have the best library of Egyptology, one of the best in the world. We take students to Egypt and that is very rare. I don't know many other institutions which do that."
