Wanna hear more about Caribbean archaeology? This Tuesday, 5th of November, Sony Jean is the very first to receive a PhD in Archaeology in Haitian history! He will present his groundbreaking PhD research La Biographie d’un Paysage, especially for us! In this research he explores the Fort-Liberté region in Haiti, examining the archaeological traces of different social groups that shaped the cultural landscape of the region over an extensive chronological period. Please come and join us! Afterwards, there is time for questions and there will be snacks.

Unfortunately, this price does not include drinks, but you can still enjoy unlimited tapas. Yes, that’s right: unlimited tapas!

After the tapas dinner, you can come join the board at Café de Keyzer for the third monthly drinks. Since it is at de Keyzer again this month, we will have a discount on drinks again.

Like every year, we organize our first party around Halloween. This gives us, and thus you as our lovely members, the perfect excuse to pull out all the stops and dress up like you have never done before. In honour of this, we will hold a little dress-up competition. Right after arriving at 22:00 at the 7th of November, you will get a ballot on which you can write the name of the person with your favourite costume. Hand in the ballot before midnight and the board will announce the winner, who will get rewarded for the effort they put in!
For tickets you can either stop by the office and pay for your ticket in person or transfer the money to NL89RABO0345625846 on the name of LAS Terra, mentioning the party and your name. You can find more info on the poster and at the link below.

Are you already excited for the terra party, but dreading the hangover next day? Don’t worry about it, because Nabu Na’id has got you covered. At the 8th of November, we will organize a hangover meal. We will be preparing several Middle Eastern dishes and drinks for you. The meal will start at 16:00 and joining will only set you back 4 euros. If this sounds like an awesome idea to you then please sign up by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include if you have any allergies or preferences. We will try to take all of your preferences into account.
L.A.S. Terra is short for the Leidsche Archaeological Study-association Terra. Throughout the year, we organise lots of activities like lectures, drinks, movie nights, trips and lots more. Besides that, we have our infamous Terra parties. Also, every year, we organise a weekend for the first year students. This takes place at the beginning of the year so that the first years get to know each other and us. Terra has a slightly weird construction, since we have five different subgroups inside the association. These subgroups each represent different Archaeological areas. When you become a member of Terra, which you are for life, you will automatically become a member of the subgroups. This means, you don’t have to sign-up or pay anything extra to join their activities. You can also just choose if you want to go to activities or not, no strings attached. If you want to know more about the subgroups, simply go to our subgroup page. Since almost every Archaeology student is a member of Terra, it is a great way to get to know fellow students and even the staff, of which many have been active members in the past. You are always welcome to come see us in our office (room C.008) for a nice chat, information about activities or just if you want to hang out with us.
