2021 | Archéo-Nil celebrates its 30th birthday!
Musée d'Archéologie Nationale, Saint-Germain-en-Laye
To celebrate its 30 years, Archéo-Nil had planned to organise a study day in September 2020, punctuated by conferences, favouring the intervention of young researchers. Given the health context, the event has been postponed to 2021.
This special day is scheduled for Saturday 11 September 2021 at the National Archaeology Museum in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. This unprecedented event will combine short communications devoted to current research on Egyptian prehistory and protohistory, in the conference room, and workshops organised in small groups and around original objects from the display cases in the museum’s galleries. The various interventions will be led by young specialists in the discipline.
This special day is reserved for Archéo-Nil members who are up to date with their membership fees and who have registered in advance. A financial contribution will be requested, in particular for the meal.
2010 | Archéo-Nil 1990-2010 20 years of Predynastic research
Paris, Collège de France & Institut de France
In June 2010, on the occasion of its twenty years of activities, Archéo-Nil proposed two study days held at the Collège de France and the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres - Institut de France in Paris, entitled: "Archéo-Nil 1990-2010: 20 years of predynastic research". The papers presented by archaeologists, prehistorians, Egyptologists and others involved in the discipline provided an overview of recent years of research on the subject of Predynastic and Early Dynastic Egypt.
For an overview of the communications of these two study days, see the last two pages of the Revue caribéenne i-Medjet 5 (2010)
And to (re)plunge into the heart of these days, (re)read the anniversary issue of the Archéo-Nil journal (20, 2010).
