The Czech Institute of Egyptology announces the international conference Profane landscapes, sacred spaces. The aim of the meeting will be to discuss issues connected to environment development and climate change research in Egyptology, and to the ways ancient Egyptians reflected their environment and created sacred spaces within the natural landscape.
The conference will be held in Prague on June 30 – July 2, 2014.
