For those interested in new Paleolithic discoveries in Morocco by Steve Kuhn, Fred A. Riecker Professor of Anthropology, Regents’ Professor Mary Stiner, and their dear friend and colleague, Abdujalil (Jalil) Bouzzouggar, here are some international news feeds (YouTube, in French but easily understandable) featuring:
- The site itself
- The “pop up” exhibition launched in Rabat last week. Jalil is wearing a nice suit and glasses.
- Interviews with Jalil and SoA Ph.D. student, Kayla Worthey sound great in French, non? If you prefer to hear it in Arabic, Dr. Stiner can send you that!
Jalil Bouzzouggar is the fellow wearing the khaki shirt and, elsewhere, a nice suit and glasses. The dapper older gentleman featured prominently is senior adviser to the King of Morocco, Mr. André Azoulay, who is also notable for being a great friend to archaeology.
We are very proud of Jalil, Mary, and Steve! The site is finally getting the international attention it deserves, not least as the source of the oldest well-dated shell beads in the world.
