2021 | Archéo-Nil celebrates its 30th birthday!

Musée d'Archéologie Nationale, Saint-Germain-en-Laye

To celebrate its 30 years, Archéo-Nil organised a study day in September 2021, punctuated by conferences, favouring the intervention of young researchers.

This unprecedented event combined short communications devoted to current research on Egyptian prehistory and protohistory, in the conference room, and workshops organised in small groups and around original objects from the display cases in the museum’s galleries. The various interventions were led by young specialists in the discipline.

2010 | Archéo-Nil 1990-2010 20 years of Predynastic research

Paris, Collège de France & Institut de France

In June 2010, on the occasion of its twenty years of activities, Archéo-Nil proposed two study days held at the Collège de France and the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres - Institut de France in Paris, entitled: "Archéo-Nil 1990-2010: 20 years of predynastic research". The papers presented by archaeologists, prehistorians, Egyptologists and others involved in the discipline provided an overview of recent years of research on the subject of Predynastic and Early Dynastic Egypt.
