Every second Tuesday of the month, the Eurasia Department invites all interested to a live video discussion of the latest excavation and research news from regions stretching from the Danube to the Pacific, and the Arctic Ocean to the Persian Gulf.
In the current restricted travel situation, we aim to bring international exchange to a virtual format. This will continue ongoing communication in our research, and perhaps even open up new horizons for the future.
The lectures will take place on Tuesday at 15:00 CET and will be in German or English.
