Floods in the Ancient Desert

The Ark, the Archaeology, and the Latest Discoveries

Dr Irving Finkel (British Museum)
Much-loved British Museum curator and scholar, Dr Irving Finkel, comes to Treadwell's to update us on some ground-breaking discoveries in ancient Near Eastern studies. The biblical story of Noah's ark is well-known to anyone who went to Sunday school, and the reality of a flood is a subject for the archaeologists of the region. Now, it looks like there is an idea of what such an ark might have actually been like. Irving Finkel, a charismatic speaker who works on the cutting edge of ancient scholarship, is Assistant Keeper of Ancient Mesopotamian (i.e. Sumerian, Babylonian and Assyrian) script, languages and cultures, in the Middle East Department of the British Museum. Join us! Price: £7.00 Time: 7.15 for a 7.30 start
