Report from the British Science Festival Talk – The Northern Past: New Archaeological Research in the Arctic

September 21, 2012

The British Science Festival was a great success for the University of Aberdeen, and the campus was bustling with activity;   vast variety of talks and other events filled the days. One of the most interesting (strictly objectively speaking 😉 ) was of course the session on Alaskan archaeology, and more precisely Nunalleq. Drs Knecht, Britton and Hillerdal did the best to entertain the audience, which considering this was a beautifully warm and sunny Sunday morning (generally a scarce commodity in Scotland) was surprisingly large. I hope they went from the event filled of new knowledge – and curiosity about the future.

Now the campus is bustling with a different kind of activity, the students have arrived for the autumn session, and a new academic year is starting up. Lecturers have little time for research at the moment, but in good time you will have reports from the lab.
