CBRL at the World Science Forum, Jordan, 2017

CBRL hosted a panel at the World Science Forum this year in Jordan to explore the role that science can play in archaeology. A panel of leading British academics in the field of archaeological science research considered how people have responded to perennial challenges, including climate change, and how people have maintained their food supply.

Representing CBRL at the World Science Forum 2017 is Dr Carol Palmer, Director of CBRL’s British Institute in Amman, and James Watt CVO, Chairman of CBRL. Carol is an environmental archaeologist and anthropologist with a special interest in Middle Eastern rural societies past and present. Former Ambassador to Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt, James has a strong interest in scientific diplomacy. HRH Prince Hassan bin Talal has been the British Institute in Amman’s patron since its establishment in the 1970s. Since 2009, the Institute has held formal ties with the Royal Scientific Society.
