Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology's
Welcome Back (to the Trenches) Reception
Field Dirt: Insider Stories and Results from Brown's 2014 Archaeological Field Seasons
Susan E. Alcock, Sheila Bonde, John F. Cherry, Nancy Khalek, Felipe Rojas, Andrew Scherer, and Peter van Dommelen
Professors Sue Alcock, Sheila Bonde, John Cherry, Nancy Khalek, Felipe Rojas, Andrew Scherer and Peter van Dommelen will share the latest news from their archaeological fieldwork this summer in Jordan, France, Montserrat, Turkey, Mexico, and Italy.
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.
Brown University's "Quiet Green" (near corner of Waterman Street and Prospect Street)
Come visit the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World in Rhode Island Hall. Faculty and students will be on hand to tour you through the building, as well as to show you artifacts and images, both from some of our current fieldwork (in the Caribbean, Egypt, Italy, Jordan, Turkey, and Rhode Island) and from the Institute's collections.
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.
