On 29 August, Prof. Lynn Meskell, currently at Stanford University, delivered a talk as part of the Department of History's Seminar Series, on 'A Future in Ruins: UNESCO, International Archaeology and the Conservation in Nubia. This was part of her latest book on the same subject. Her talk spanned across various themes related to the politics of archaeological exploration and UNESCO's role in the 'internationalisation' of heritage conservation during the Cold War era. She highlighted the competing narratives of European powers involved in forging a 'transnational archaeology'.
