Between the 9th and 13th of June 2014 the 9th International Congress on the Archaeology of the Ancient Near East (ICAANE) is held in Basel, Switzerland. There is a section called “Dealing with the Past” where I will present a talk about the influence of early archaeological reconstructions to Near Eastern Archaeology. You can find the program and abstracts on the official website.
If you are following us and going to the ICAANE this year, I would be glad if you come by and say hello.
Last Thursday, Deutschlandradio Kultur was broadcasting a 5-minute report about 3D visualisations in Archaeology and our contribution to the Uruk exhibition. Nicola Crüsemann, the curator of the Uruk exhibition, was also interviewed. If you want to listen, Deutschlandradio Kultur has kindly allowed us to upload the MP3 of that Interview to our website.
