Description:

The Block Museum presents a special opportunity to hear from six international archaeologists whose excavations in Mali, Morocco, and Nigeria were fundamental to the shaping of the exhibition Caravans of Gold. Exhibition curator Kathleen Bickford Berzock will moderate a conversation that will include insights into the excavation process, the “archaeological imagination,” and the protection of cultural patrimony. Participants include Abidemi Babatunde Babalola (UK), Mamadou Cissé (Mali), Mamadi Dembélé (Mali), Abdallah Fili (Morocco), Ronald A. Messier (US), and Sam Nixon (UK)—joining us from institutions ranging from the Direction nationale du patrimoine culturel of Mali to the British Museum.

Presented by The Block Museum in partnership with the Dept. of Anthropology and Program of African Studies.
