Subject: Seminars on fieldwork

We will again this year have a series of Wednesday noon seminars to
present the results of our fieldwork in Egypt. These will begin at
12:10, last for 50-60 minutes, and be followed by a light lunch for
those who can stay.
Location: 617B Hamilton Hall
The schedule is as follows:
April 12, Nicola Aravecchia (University of Minnesota): Excavations
at Ain el-Gedida
Ain el-Gedida is a fourth-century site in the Dakhla Oasis, not
far from Kellis, where the Egyptian antiquities service excavated in
the early 1990s. This year a small group from our field team collaborated
with our Egyptian colleagues on recording the site and extending the
excavations. An early church was among the major finds.
April 19, Roger Bagnall: The 2006 season at Amheida
This talk will give an overview of the areas of the site on which
excavation and conservation work was carried out this year.
April 26, Anna Boozer: The House that Kept on Giving
More modest than the late Roman villa with the paintings, but
rich in small finds and information, this house in the north part
of the site was finished this year.
May 3, Raffaella Cribiore and David Ratzan: Poetry on the Walls
Elegiac couplets exhorting the young to practice rhetoric in
verse, in red paint. A unique discovery.
