Welcome to the Brown Bag Series in Archaeology!





Uploaded Image



The Brown Bag series is intended to stimulate the sharing and discussion of current work in archaeology undertaken by graduate students and faculty at Brown University and nearby institutions. Speakers give presentations on their current archaeological interests or research and take questions from the audience in an informal setting. The development and maturation of ideas is the goal, and anyone interested in archaeology is invited to attend. Lunch will be provided, so please come, eat, and enjoy the experience!


Thursdays 12-1 PM

Room 108 at the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World

(Rhode Island Hall, 60 George Street)
