Tonight it is Christmas party at Arkeologikonsult in Upplands Väsby. Jolly cheers, beers and some wine mixed with Italian wine are promised. There is still one week left at the excavation at Rissne so a there are a few more snowy archaeology days left to look forward to.
This weekend I’ll attend an Archaeological seminar on recent Qin and Han Archaeological findings in Shaanxi province at the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities in Stockholm.
In connection with the exhibition China’s Terracotta Army at the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities, a seminar will be held in order to provide an in depth picture of the exhibited archaeological findings. Three Chinese archaeologists from Shaanxi province discuss several archaeological sites excavated in recent years, including the tomb complex of the First Emperor of Qin, as well as Han Yangling, the tomb complex of Forth Emperor of Han.
The seminar will be held in Chinese, with English interpreter.
