Dr Dominique Briquel from Université de Paris-Sorbonne (IV) and École Pratique des Hautes Études Gives Lecture at the Institute of Archaeology, CASS
From:Chinese Archaeology  Writer:  Date:2009-05-08

   

     Doctor Dominique Briquel, a professor at the Université de Paris-Sorbonne (IV), tutor at the École Pratique des Hautes Études and Corresponding Member of the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres, was invited to give a lecture at the Institute of Archaeology on April 24th, 2009. In his lecture "The Etruscan Script : Between the Greek and Latin Scripts", Doctor Briquel gave an overview of the course of development of the Etruscan script and explained how the Etruscans had modelled their script on the Greek script used by Greek emigrants in order to create their own writing system, which then became a symbol of the Etruscan people and social identity. The seminar is part of a series of lectures organised by the École Française d'Extrême-Orient's Beijing Centre. Among the participants were Doctors Olivier Venture and Marianne Bujard from the École Française d'Extrême-Orient, several French scholars, and researchers and postgraduate students from various departments of the Institute of Archaeology (CASS).


    Deputy Director Chen Xingcan presided over the seminar before going on to meet with the visiting French scholars.
