A week full of Sudan Archaeology & Greek Archaeology in Bergen

When I woke up this morning, the light of the moon was coming in our living room. It was the first time that this was happening since my return from Johannesburg – but the days of clear skies will surely not last long… It felt as a sign though that today I should write in the blog again about Africa (something that I have been avoiding the last days, mainly because of the loads of work that awaited me after completing this period of intensive travelling in the second half of October).

And I had all reasons to do so, since last night Henriette completed all preparations for the three lectures that she has organized for next week in the frame of our Research Group on Middle Eastern and African Studies at the University of Bergen.

We can’t really remember when was the last time that we had such an active week in Bergen as far as Sudan Archaeology is concerned! This is thanks to the visits of Dr. Cornelia Kleinitz and Dr. John Gait organized by Henriette in the frame of the annual program of guest lecturers of the research group – where Sudan Studies in the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Bergen are mainly being hosted. Here follow the posters that Henriette prepared for the three events:

The three Sudanological venues left Wednesday open. But this was not a chance choice. We wanted to have the possibility to attend as many lectures as possible from a day-seminar on the most renown Greek-Norwegian archaeological project, namely the one focusing on Ancient Tegea. Details about this seminar can be found here.

The intense program of next week will be surely followed by some reports in the blog too. Spread the word and stay tuned!
