A day of Archaeology: coffee morning, seminars and... the table quiz!

****Update: BREAKING NEWS !! The prizes for the table quiz (see below) this year include blenders, iPod docks, sets of 4 headphones, video games, board games, books and a Guitar Hero guitar ! Excited much? We are! Come to the quiz this Thursday ! Don't miss out ! ****

Dear everyone,

This year is drawing to a close and before exams fall upon you like falcons upon its prey, please let us entertain you with a programme filled with academic and NON academic activities ! So ladies and gentlemen, please put the date of Thursday 24th April  in your diaries !

12-2pm Coffee morning (Red Room)
2-4pm Study Seminar   (Red Room)
5:30-7pm Evening seminar (A109, Newman)
7:30-10:30pm TABLE QUIZ ! (Red Room)*

*Nota: There will be a small fee of 2€ per person for the Table Quiz. Teams of 4.

Firstly, we will have our coffee morning that day- and not on Wednesday 23rd- so that all assignments can be handed in in time. We would not blame you for preferring coffee and Oreos to finishing those nasty essays of yours, but our moral duty is to keep you on the right path of academia!
This will be in the Red Room between 12pm and 2pm.

The after you have relaxed and feasted on our excellent selection of biscuits - yes, it is excellent ! - we will hold a study seminar to help you get ready for exams, answer your questions, give you tips, and much more! We will have a special guest speaker - yet to be confirmed - from the School to share their wisdom and experience with you.

Then - oh yes, it gets even better ! - we will head back to the Newman Building for the last Thursday seminar of the year, a fantastic talk by Prof. Ian Ralston from the University of Edinburgh. He will be telling us about Bourges-Avaricum, an oppidum in central France and a possible example for early urbanism in Europe ! This will be in room A109 at 5:30pm.

And then finally, the one event you have all been waiting for: THE TABLE QUIZ !!! For this, we will go back to the Red Room and be entertained for the rest of the evening by tricky questions, drinks, and special prizes !!
