On the 4th of February, Johan de Laet is organising a lecture. Want to know more about Maya culture? Then get ready for an awesome lecture given by Genner on the ancient future of Maya heritage. Maya and other Indigenous peoples have upheld a circular vision of the world for centuries, despite Western influence and colonialism. This talk will focus on what the notion of “ancient future” means for the study of Maya heritage and how it relates to anthropology, linguistics, archaeology and history.
Don’t hesitate to join us on the 4th of February at 17.00 in room E002A!

It is that time of the year, in which Terra joins forces with our building brothers in LBC, to organize our pub quiz!
The quiz will both test your knowledge on your own field of science, as well as your ability to learn about biology. The pub quiz will take place in the Science Club at Gorlaeus (the ufo building)! The doors open at 17:30 and the quiz begins at 18:30. Would you like to join, but is dinner an issue? We will order Eazie, which will arrive around 18:00. You can sign up for this by filling in this google form. You can pay by transfer to the Terra bank account: NL89RABO0345625846. For the pub quiz, you can sign up beforehand with three people through this google form, and your trio will be paired with a trio from LBC. You can also show up without signing up, but you will be put in a team on the spot.
See you all at the pub quiz!

Hope to see you all there for an unforgettable night!
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.
