The latest issue of African Archaeological Review (AAR) is hosting the statement of the European Committee for Preserving the Middle Nile. The statement as published in AAR can be found here. For those without access to the journal, the original version is also accessible in the present blog here.
We hope that the publication of the petition to stop the dams in Sudan by the European Committee in an academic journal focusing on archaeological research in Africa will bring awareness to archaeologists about the serious threat that the dams constitue towards the environment, the people living there, and the cultural heritage marking the landscape or buried in the soil.
Another outcome should also be more signatures on the online Petition to Stop the Dams in Sudan.
