Middle East - Looking to the Past to Understand the Future
With the Middle East constantly in the
news, University of Leicester archaeologists will be looking at the quality of
life enjoyed by past societies in this region, particularly those inhabiting
desert areas, as well as its implications for today, during the BA Festival of
Science to be held at the University between 9-13 September 2002.
Quality of life is this year’s theme
for the BA Festival, which is the UK’s biggest science festival, held annually
at different universities throughout the country.
This year’s event will attract 400 top international scientists and
science communicators and reveal the latest developments in research.
A total of 3,000 delegates are expected
to attend the event at the University, as well as thousands of students of all
ages and members of the public interested in science.
The Festival returns to the
University of Leicester for the third time since 1921, during a year in which
the University is celebrating its 80th anniversary.
