An integrated scientific approach to central Sudan prehistory : the Al Khiday case - 1st Meeting of the CSSeS

[Congrès, colloques, réunions]

18 juin 2013

Università degli Studi di Milano - Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra “A. Desio”

The excavation at Al Khiday (Central Sudan, Khartoum Region), organized by CSSeS ( is now getting to its 9th season and the interdisciplinary approach followed in the research permitted to gain an incredible amount of data, which is ready to be published. Thanks to the contribution of archaeologists and specialists of many scientific disciplines (geoarchaeology, archaeometry, anthropology, zooarchaeology, geochemistry) the quality of information is quite high and Al Khiday sites may become of a reference for the archaeology of the Nile valley in the Early and Middle Holocene periods.

This meeting will represent an occasion to update on the development of the project, hoping that this may open a debate, highlight new path to investigate, possible scientific problems, new collaborations, and see how information gathered by each specialist correlate or contrast.
