The EES: Study Day Announcement

Online Study Day

Between Africa and Asia: New research from the Sinai Peninsula

 

Saturday 10th July 2021, 12:00-17:00 (UK)

 

A study day of the Egypt Exploration Society and the Palestine Exploration Fund.

The Sinai Peninsula forms a geological land bridge between north Africa and western Asia connecting the diverse cultures existing there for thousands of years. However, wider understanding of this area and the interconnections it facilitated are often overlooked. This online study day, organised in partnership by the Egypt Exploration Society and the Palestine Exploration Fund, will consider some of the latest research into the archaeology and history of this unique landscape from its position as a frontier zone, as a melting pot for early Christianity, through to its late antiquity and subsequent historical exploration and mapping.

Speakers: Dr Hesham M. Hussein, Dr Ahmed Shams, Dr Konstantinos D. Politis and Dr Jamie Fraser.
