Field Dirt and the William F. Church Memorial Lecture

Here at AIA Narragansett we’ve just heard of two interesting events that are free and open to the public that we would like to share.

On Wednesday, 11 September 2013Field Dirt: Insider Stories and Results from Brown’s 2013 Archaeological Field Seasons will feature talks by Susan E. Alcock, Sheila Bonde, John F. Cherry, Omur Harmansah, Felipe Rojas, Andrew Scherer, and Peter van Dommelen on their archaeological fieldwork this summer in Jordan, France, Montserrat, Turkey, Mexico, and Italy.

On Tuesday, 24 September 2013,  the 34th William F. Church Memorial Lecture will take place at the Salomon Center on the Brown University campus in room 001.

John Brewer (Eli and Edye Broad Professor in Humanities and Social Sciences, California Institute of Technology) will give a talk entitled “Vesuvius and Pompeii: travel, tourism, science and the imagination in the early nineteenth century”. A small reception will follow the lecture.

We hope to see you there!
