Location: Room 612, Institute of Archaeology
Simon Bright (Zimmedia Productions) will give the next seminar in the African Peoples and Pasts series at the Institute on 16 January.
In a change to the usual seminar format, the documentary film 'Tides of Gold' which looks at the gold trade associated with the first southern African city-states and the links that developed with the coast and beyond will be screened to be followed by a talk by the film's producer and co-director Simon Bright (Zimmedia Productions) and a Q&A session. A focus of discussion will be plans to expand the documentary into a six-part series covering the rest of the continent.
All are welcome. The event will be followed by a wine reception in the Staff Common Room.
Any enquiries about the event may be directed to Oli Boles.
