Archaeology events during International Education Week

November 15-19 was International Education Week at UE.  The keynote speaker was our colleague Dr. Morag Kersel, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at DePaul University.  She spoke to a packed room on the topic "Serving the State: Archaeology, Cultural Diplomacy and Foreign Relations."
