Come watch Brown undergraduates digging (yes, really digging). This year, as part of Brown's 250th anniversary celebration, students will be excavating right on the university's main campus, exploring the possible site of the first president's house. Stop by (with your family or on your own) any time between 12:30 and 3:00.

Graduate Symposium:
Ancient Pyrotechnology: Materials Science Investigations into Archaeomaterials

RESCHEDULED. Date TBD.

This graduate symposium on ancient pyrotechnology will explore the multitude of materials science investigations into archaeomaterials. By moving away from the ideals of stylistic typologies and evaluating materials on the basis of technique, technical skill, treatment, and material choice, we may begin to examine technological style, or the choices the craftsman makes in the production of an artifact.

Please visit http://proteus.brown.edu/ancientpyrotechnology/home for further updates.

The symposium is being organized in conjunction with Brown School of Engineering, and is free and open to the public.
