Archaeology day 10th Dec 2012
Center for Extra-Mural Studies, University of Mumbai celebrates Archaeology Day in association with INSTUCEN Trust and Sathaye College, Mumbai to create awareness and raise consciousness about archaeology and need for conservation.
For all the archaeology enthusiasts, this is a celebration with a purpose of creatiing awareness regarding study of archaeology, importance of conservation, why study of archaeology helps us come out of our small shells and ponds...
The programme is going to be a day-long programme- from 10-30 am to 6.30 pm.
The general idea so far is to have a Archaeo-Haat, where career oriented info will be available, films will be shown, some antiquities will be on display, there would be workshops on Brahmi and Kharoshti and Sharada scripts. There will be round table discussions, Chats with experts...may be a stone-tool workshop.. poster exhibitions, photo exhibitions. book stalls...
We are also considering organizing some local archaeological site-visits in the preceding week as well as in the following week.
More will come in as brain storming goes on...All are welcome to participate.
