The deadline for applications for the postdoctoral position has now passed and the panel will be starting work on shortlisting now. Thank you to all who applied.

Next year we hope to advertise a PhD Studentship to grow the team further, so please watch this space/subscribe to the blog using the link ’email subscription’ to the right of the screen.

Le délai pour soumettre les dossiers pour considération pour le poste de chercheur postdoctoral est désormais passé. Le jury va maintenant débuter le processus du ‘shortlisting’ . Merci à tous ceux qui ont postulé.

L’année prochaine nous espérons pouvoir offrir une bourse doctorale, afin d’agrandir l’équipe encore plus. Veuillez donc regarder à nouveau cette page. Vous pouvez par exemple utiliser le lien ’email subscription’ à droite sur cet écran.

About this blog

This blog has been set up to chart the activities and research findings of two projects led by Anne Haour, an archaeologist from the Sainsbury Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, United Kingdom.

The first project, called Crossroads, brings together a team of archaeologists, historians and anthropologists studying the Niger Valley where it borders Niger and Bénin (West Africa). We are hoping to shed more light on the people that inhabited the area in the past 1500 years and to understand how population movements and craft techniques shaped the area's past.

The second project, called Cowries, examines the money cowrie, a shell which served as currency, ritual object and ornament across the world for millennia, and in medieval times most especially in the Maldive Islands of the Indian Ocean and the Sahelian regions of West Africa. We hope to understand how this shell was sourced and used in those two areas.

These investigations are funded by the European Research Council as part of the Starting Independent Researcher Programme (Seventh Framework Programme – FP7) and by the Leverhulme Trust as a Research Project Grant. The opinions posted here are however Anne Haour's own!
