Digging the Dirt
Thursday 21 July 2011, 19.00-20.30
Working in mud, examining our latrines and faeces, and treasuring
our discarded debris, archaeologists are uniquely placed to offer
insights into our complex relationship with waste and dirt. Peer
through the lens of archaeology to find out just how dirty our past
was, the wonders contained in a speck of soil and what the future
holds for the study of our filthy remains.
