Returning from London and the meeting with MAP

The Yangshao project (me and my associate Johan Klange) went to London on Thursday and returned late last night for a conference with MAP (Museo Arti Primarie aka. the Museum of Primary Arts) at the British museum. The trip to London went well, the weather was fine and the sun was shining most of the time so we walked a lot and enjoyed the London spring. It was a bit hard to return to ca – 5º c and several dm of snow.

While walking about we visited the V & A (Victorian & Albert) museum, Natural History Museum and managed to get a quick look at some of the exhibits at British Museum.

On Friday afternoon we enjoyed the conference or rather the art performances of – and press conference about MAP. Afterwards we had a constructive meeting discussing the different painted pottery traditions that often are clustered as the Yangshao culture and discussing the future, more about that in a later post. They also did an interview with us on camera that will be available on their webpage sometime in the future.

Well, home again and now begins the work of putting something together for the next step for the project a meeting in Savona, Italy, with MAP where we’ll hold a short seminar/lecture on the Yangshao period.

Time for departure

Today we’re off to London, but first a brief visit to the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities in Stockholm, then it’s off to the airport and London. In London we’ll attend the conference held by MAP (Museum of Primary Arts) in the Raymond and Bevery Sackler Rooms at British Museum, more information in this event is available at the Italian Cultural Institute in London.

Best wishes
