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).

Conference “Poles in the Near East” 2021

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…
