1st doctoral symposium on Sudanese archaeology « Cultural exchanges in ancient Sudanese societies. Borrowings, adaptations, survivals. »

On September 6th and 7th 2011, the first doctoral symposium on Sudanese archaeology was held in Paris. It focused on cultural exchanges in ancient Sudanese societies : borrowings, adaptations and survivals.

This symposium was funded by the Sorbonne Center for Egyptologic Research (CRES), where the symposium took place, and by the SFDAS, the director of which presided the two study sessions. The SFDAS was represented by Romain David, scholarship student and Hélène Delattre, international volunteer-archaeologist.

Every French mission in Sudan (El Hassa, Mouweis, Saï and Sedeinga) were represented by the speakers. These talks, as well as two workshops, were supervised by the research and mission directors; who have kept research in Nubian archaeology alive for years. The richness and quality of the interventions and the discussions was emphasized, as well as the need to renew this experience in the near future.
