Bartosz Kontny, prof. teach I am establishing the days off the classes (Dean’s Days) on March 22-26, 2021, due to the planned 2nd Conference of the Faculty of Archeology, “The Past Has a Future! / The Past Has a Future!”. Dean’s days are days off from classes at the Faculty of Archeology. However, it is recommended that students participate in three selected conference sessions, in particular those related to the subject of the specialization chosen by the student.

New Heads of Studies

Dear Students,

I am very glad to announce that today, I appointed new Heads of Studies. The new Head of Studies in Polish is now Dr. Elżbieta Jaskulska. Dr. Katarzyna Pyżewicz agreed to accept the position of the Head of Studies in English. Dr. Jaskulska remains a member of the Didactic Council, while Dr. Pyżewicz will continue to act as the tutor of the 1st year students.
Both Heads will receive appropriate documents from me, which will allow us to speed up the decisions on students’ matters, to handle the correspondence with students and provide information on the organization of studies. The main burden of contacts with lecturers will remain with me, as well as administrative matters and more difficult cases concerning the students’ problems. I am sure that after such a division of duties, we will all feel an improvement in the process of organizing and servicing the studies.
Dear all, I think that the worst time is behind us. We have to endure a bit more in these uncomfortable conditions forced by the epidemic, but I am very optimistic and I can’t wait for a moment when we start meeting in the corridors of our Faculty.

Best wishes and always yours,
Agnieszka Tomas

Nubiology is looking for a future ceramologist!

Dear Students,

there are more and more and more archaeological excavations in Sudan since recent years and we need archaeologists specialising in the archeology of Nubia. The University of Warsaw has been specialising in medieval Nubia studies since the 1960s, and our graduates become specialists appreciated also abroad. Since we are just starting a new project, we want to attract new people into Nubian ceramics studies. We offer a preparatory course before participating in the excavation (three seasons planned, all costs and pocket money covered), during which the chosen person will document the pottery material. It is an ideal basis for the preparation of a BA / MA thesis and further specialisation in this field.

Study and work await!

If you are interested, please send your CV to the following address: d.zielnska@uw.edu.pl.

More about the project: http://miseeda.uw.edu.pl/

To see how we work and what you can learn about the history of Nubia from ceramics, I encourage you to attend the conference of the Faculty of Archeology on March 23, in our session (in Polish)on the formation of the Nubian kingdoms entitled Time of Change? Nubia in the Late Antiquity (the registration form is available on our website in the News / Conference tab).

After a one-year break, we invite you yet again to take part in the archaeological conference Poles in the Near East. Its fifth edition is planned to take place online on 9–11 June, 2021.

The conference is organized by the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology of the University of Warsaw and the Chair of the Archaeology of Orient, Faculty of Archaeology of the University of Warsaw. The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for the exchange of information on archaeological research and conservation work carried out with the participation of Polish researchers and institutions in the broadly-defined Near East: from the eastern Mediterranean to Central Asia. The submitted presentations should be related to the archaeology of the above-mentioned areas in a wide time frame, from prehistory to the late Middle Ages. More info here…
