Old Kingdom Art and Archaeology

In July 2014, in a cooperation with the Polish Center for Mediterranean Archaeology UW, Institute of Archaeology UW, Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures PAN and Pułtusk Academy of Humanities, we organised the international conference “Old Kingdom Art and Archaeology”.
Abstracts of papers are available here: OKAA-Abstracts_of_papers
Proceedings of the conference will be published in 2015.


We are working hard on reorganising our library.
