From Stamp Seals of Mesopotamia to China’s Monumental Architecture via Indian City Waterscapes

Such is the range of subjects addressed in our Student Lecture Series. On Tuesday 25th November we were delighted to welcome Simon Denham from the University of Manchester and British Museum. His lecture, a glimpse into his recent PhD thesis, provided an interesting theory around the patterning and use of stone seals in Greater Mesopotamia in the late Neolithic period.
