Cambridge Science Festival 2016 logo

Take part in a collective experience of carrying a treasured object on a journey of discovery. Along the way, listen, imagine, create and share in the adventures of the enchanted pot from the Mesopotamian Marshlands. Walking on the earth, holding the clay, exploring connections between ourselves and the land, through the changing shape of the voice and the vessel.

The walk will be led by members of a Sedimentology-Fine Art research collective based in Iraq and the UK: Nawrast Sabah Abd Alwahab, Shaima al-Sitrawi, Kelcy Davenport, Sally Stenton and Sarah Strachan.

Meet at the main reception of Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, Cambridge CB1 1PT. The tour will take you via Newnham Common to the Department of Archaeology (University of Cambridge), and end at the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences.
