Location: Room 612, UCL Institute of Archaeology
The second seminar in the Term II UCL Institute of Archaeology thematic research seminar series on Current Research in the Archaeology of Sudan will take place on 14 January.
The Term II seminar series on the archaeology of Sudan brings together current research from members and alumnae of the Institute of Archaeology and colleagues from other UK institutions working in and on Sudan. The Institute's Archaeology of Egypt and Sudan Research Network takes the seminar series as a chance to explore the expanding research on Sudan and the growing prominence of this research in wider World Archaeology.
The second seminar, entitled Khawaja and basket boys: Amara West in
archive and memories, will be given by Tomomi Fushiya, University of Leiden and all are welcome.
Any enquiries about the seminar series may be directed to Claudia Näser.
