The Crowded Desert is a joint project developed by UCL Qatar and Qatar Museums and supported by Qatar National Research Fund (NPRP8-1582-6-56). The project is an archaeological study of the desert landscape of north-western Qatar, which seeks to understand the history of the nomadic and settled people in the area and their relationship with other distant places in the Arabian Gulf region.

 

Let's Explore Archaeology: Illustrated Presentation and Teachers Pack

UCL Qatar has developed an illustrated presentation for children between the ages of 6 - 11 years from the results of the Crowded Desert Project's three years of archaeological excavations and historical research. The presentation introduces students to the concept of archaeology from a desert environment, it takes students on a journey from the start of searching for an object to its final resting place in a museum. Furthermore, it seeks to introduce students to various archaeological methods used when excavating in the desert. 

To accompany the presentation, UCL Qatar has created a teachers pack containing an annotated version of the presentation, suggested classroom activity, a glossary of terms and additional resources. These resources are available to download in both English and Arabic.
