Roman Archaeological Group Meeting and Professional Learning Event
Dear RAG Members and Friends of RAG,

Lecture Theatre at UWA,
starting 1:30. The programme for the day, which includes our AGM, is as follows:
1.30 - 2.10 pm
What’s new in Roman Britain
Although Britannia lasted less than four centuries and was far less-romanized than neighbouring provinces across the Channel, it regularly reveals impressive evidence from excavation, survey and chance finds, all of which are reported systematically every year.
2.10 - 2.30
2.30 - 3.00 pm
Tea Break (free tea and coffee)
3.00 - 4.00 pm
Arabio, Bocchus and Bogud: mapping the fortunes of local forces in Africa 47-41 BCE
Like many African leaders in the ancient world, Arabio, Bocchus and Bogud are known to us only through Greek and Roman sources. This
talk will focus on their fortunes during Rome’s civil war period, and how their decisions impacted on the fate of Roman commanders in their
part of the world.
For RAG members, please find attached a copy of the minutes from last year’s AGM
Egyptian Exploration Society Online Couse: An Introduction to Ancient Egypt
The material on the link below could be very useful for teachers picking up Egyptian for the first time, either at lower school level
or at General level. The Egypt Exploration Society is quite amazing and well worth joining -- especially now that they are offering
courses at beginner level and if you are a member you are normally offered a 50% discount.
During each online course they run they put up Youtube copies of the presentations on a secure website so that there really is no need to
get out of bed at 2 am or thereabouts to take part in the live sessions unless of course, you want to be part of the online chat
community. They usually keep the presentations on Youtube for about 3 - 4 weeks after the courses before taking them down.
These people are working Egyptologists of various ilk and most certainly know what they are talking about. They are experts in their
fields. Click on the link for all details!

Visiting lecturer Professor of Egyptology at the University of Milan, Dr Patrizia Piacentini will speak
about “Archaeological excavation and archives as tools for helping us understand the Ancient World”.
The lecture will illustrate the manner in which evidence from both archaeological excavations and from archival material is recovered
and studied by experts; eventually becoming the history that is taught in schools.
Yamaji, Martu, Yarnagu and Anangu peoples respond to the explorers walking through Country. From Another View aims to contextualise
Aboriginal peoples' understanding of Country with those of the explorers.
Hosted by the State Library of Western Australia education team, this professional learning event offers a curatorial preview of the
