Audio recording of Samarra project lecture now online

On 27th February, Rosalind and I were hugely honoured to give the annual Mallowan lecture, following the 80th AGM of the British Institute for the Study of Iraq. It was a really successful evening, with a large audience and a jolly reception afterwards, in which we gave the traditional toast to Max Mallowan, former BISI director in its previous incarnation as the British School of Archaeology in Iraq, and his wife Agatha Christie. Details of the lecture can be found here

BISI recorded the lecture and this recording has just gone live on their Events Archive pages. You can find us on Page 5 or by following this link.

Samarra fans may also be interested in some of the other recordings on these pages - for instance, papers delivered at the conference "Gertrude Bell and Iraq: A Life and Legacy" in September 2013, or Robert Irwin's lecture on medieval Basra, from September 2012.
