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).

The list of classes held in the building

Dear Students,
with a one-day delay resulting, i.a., from the need to determine the opening hours of the building, the capacity of the rooms and the appointment of staff to disinfect the room, I would like to inform you that the list of the classes held in the Faculty building or in the museums is now available below.
The classes in the building or meetings planned in May and in June will be arranged as soon as we know the conditions and possibities of further meetings. Of course, we are all aware that our plans can change due to the third tidal wave of the Covid-2 cases.
I wish you a quick return to normality,
Yours,
Agnieszka Tomas
