Spring 2012 Study Day Series from the South Assasif team

‘Gateway to an artistic renaissance: South Asasif Conservation Project in context’ with Dr Elena Pischikova and Dr Robert Morkot.

These Study Day’s will feature two expert speakers and combine the latest news from the field (Dr Elena Pischikova) with an orientation and leading interpretation around the Kushite period (Dr Robert Morkot).
- ‘The Kushite conquest and Thebes in the 25th Dynasty' by Dr Robert Morkot
- 'South Asasif Project update - Overview and latest results from 2010 and 2011' by
Dr Elena Pischikova
- 'Looking back to Egypt's past and forwards to a new style' by Dr Robert Morkot
- 'South Asasif Conservation Project - anatomy of an excavation' by Dr Elena Pischikova, John Billman and Trisha Mason

These are fund-raising Study Day’s organized by the South Asasif Conservation Trust which supports the work of the South Asasif Conservation Project directed by Dr Elena Pischikova. The project is reliant on private finance and is very much in need of funds.
