Floor Talk: To hell and back, the Bronze Age
April 22, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join the Abbey Museum of Art and Archhaeology and guest speaker Mr. Andrew Fairbairn, and travel back in time to 1200 BC where the Late Bronze Age civilisations of the Mediterranian world have collapsed!
What happened to cause this downfall? A European invasion? Famine? Civil wars? A Climate catastrophe or natural diaster? A Zombie outbreak?
This exciting Floor Talk will explore these causes (yes, even the zombie outbreak) and their effects on the rise and ultimate fall of the civilisations that heralded the end of the Early Bronze Age world.
Guest speaker Mr Fairbairn, is an not only a esteemed archaeobotanist, but is an Associate Professor and Australian Research Council Future Fellow in Archaeology at The University of Queensland!
