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.
Come watch Brown undergraduates digging (yes, really digging). Stop by any time between 12:30 and 3:00.
Brown University's "Quiet Green" (near corner of Waterman Street and Prospect Street)
Symposium: Unknown Scripts
A 2-day conference organized by Felipe Rojas, and sponsored by the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World.
Ancient Pyrotechnology: Materials Science Investigations into Archaeomaterials
Friday, December 6, 2013 - Saturday, December 7, 2013
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.
Greg Woolf is Professor of Ancient History in the Department of Classics at the University of St. Andrews, in Scotland. His interests include the cultural, social, religious and economic history of the Roman world, broadly understood. Much of his work involves applying ideas from the social sciences to the material, documentary and literary evidence from antiquity. Currently most of his work is on religious history, but he maintains interests in European prehistory, in ancient literacy, in ethnographic writing and in the comparative history of imperialism. His main current project is a study of the origins of religious pluralism in the Roman empire. He is also engaged in editing various collections, some arising from the recent Leverhulme sponsored project co-directed with Jason König. Future projects include a short book on diasporas and colonization in classical antiquity.
