The new issue of Pan European Networks’ Science and Technology magazine (Issue 19, June 2016) features a 3-page spread on the CREWS project.
If you would like to read more about the remit and the aims of the project – and why ancient writing systems and the people who used them are worth studying – then you can read the whole article for free online. Just click on the link below, and the article is on p72-4.
In conjunction with the appearance of the article, I also did a fifteen-minute interview with Pan European Networks to say a little bit about the basis for the project’s research and how people can get involved with it, as well as the importance of European funding for endeavours like this one.
You can read the interview online here:
These two links offer a great way of finding out a bit more about what we are planning to do with the CREWS project. There will undoubtedly be more such features that I will of course share (when someone asks me to enthuse on the subject of ancient writing systems, I find it hard to say no!), and in the future some more definite ideas about how YOU can get involved in the project.
