Join us at THE BLUE HOUSE – 151 Jan Smuts Avenue – on Saturday 8 February 2020, 11 AM for an exclusive opportunity to listen to Wits University professor Dr Karim Sadr share an overview on archaeological theories, methods and practice.
Dr Sadr will be using ARCHAEOLOGY: THEORIES, METHODS AND PRACTICE by Colin Renfrew and Paul G. Bahn – the sixth edition of the best selling introduction to archaeology – as a springboard on the topic. This book provides thorough coverage of all the major developments in archaeological method, science, technology and theory.
