Non-Human Art @ Teatro, Espai la Senieta

Lecturer: Rosalind Miranda

Art is usually considered a uniquely human ability, but keep your minds open!

This talk will be divided into two parts: The first will concentrate on art made by animals other than humans, both in their natural environment and also when encouraged by humans. The second part will show some of the possibilities that can be produced by artificial intelligence.

For both of these types of art, some of the legal implications will also be discussed.

Ancient Egypt SUSPENDED until further notice @ Salon de Actos, Espai la Senieta
Oct 19 @ 10:30 – 12:00
Frequency: Monthly: 3rd Monday, at 10:30
Venue: Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira

Group leader: David Rohl

Bedouins passing by Mount Sinai

The Ancient Egypt group is dedicated to the study of pharaonic Egypt from the Predynastic Age to the absorption of the Nile valley into the Roman Empire in 30 BC. Over the course of the project, we will be covering many different aspects of Egyptian civilisation, some of which you won’t be able to read about in popular books on the subject. But, don’t let that put you off! The presentations will be easy to follow and full of wonderful visuals … so you can just relax and let the magic of Egypt and the rest of the Ancient World wash over you like the gentle waters of the River Nile.

The group is led by one of the world’s best-known Egyptologists – writer, TV presenter, renowned international lecturer, historian and archaeologist, David Rohl, who has spent more than fifty years exploring the landscapes of the ancient Near East – from the high mountain valleys of Eden in mythical Persia to the vast barren deserts bordering ancient Kemet (the ‘Black Land’ = the Nile valley). He is best known for his internationally acclaimed TV documentary series ‘Pharaohs and Kings’, ‘In Search of Eden’, ‘The Egyptian Genesis’, and as a leading figure in the multi-award-winning cinema documentary ‘Patters of Evidence – The Exodus’. David has also written five bestselling books translated into twelve languages.

David Rohl, presenter of Pharaohs and Kings (Channel Four and Discovery Channel 1995).The group meets every third Monday of the month at the Salon de Actos, in la Senieta theatre, Moraira, starting at 10.30am and finishing around midday. Each meeting begins with a seventy-minute (or so) presentation on the day’s subject, employing David’s stunning visuals and informative graphics. Group members are then encouraged to participate in a Q & A discussion for the remaining fifteen minutes of the session.

Due to David’s international lecturing, archaeological research and TV commitments, there may be occasions in the year when he will be away and the lecture is postponed to the following month. However, confirmation of each lecture will be notified to all members, approximately one week before the meeting, giving the lecture title and a short explanation of the subject.

The monthly talks are not always entirely restricted to Egypt, since David will be throwing in the occasional lecture on the history and archaeology of the Old Testament, the ‘Heroic Age’ of Bronze Age Greece, the Minoan bull-leaping culture of Crete, the warlike Hittites of Anatolia (modern Turkey), and the ancient civilisations of Mesopotamia (modern Iraq and Syria), as well as some ‘specials’ on completely different but nevertheless fascinating topics such as the legendary epic tale of the Trojan War and the Romano-Spanish traditions surrounding the Sangreal (‘Holy Grail’).

British India: A Turbulent love affair. Part 0ne: 1600-1858 @ Teatro, Espai la Senieta Moraira
Nov 30 @ 10:30 – 12:30
British India: A Turbulent love affair. Part 0ne: 1600-1858 @ Teatro, Espai la Senieta Moraira

‘On a warm summer night in 1947, the largest Empire the world had ever seen did something no Empire had done before; it gave up. The British Empire did not decline, it simply fell; and it fell proudly and majestically on to its own sword’ (Alexandre von Tunzelmann 2007)

This complex story needs to be told from the beginning;

In 1600 Queen Elizabeth the First issued a charter to the 59 businessmen who had formed the East India Trading Company to commence commercial trade with Mughal India. The charter was for 15 years and was valid as long as the agreement remained profitable.

James the First amended that agreement and instead gave ‘John Company’, as it was colloquially known, a new open ended charter but it was Charles the second who gave the Company unlimited powers enabling the Directors to circumvent Parliament, establish a secretive headquarters in London, raise its own army in India, mint its own coins, impose its own laws and, taking advantage of the extreme length of time to communicate with London, generally behave much as it pleased.

India had so many immensely profitable riches that it was never the intention to colonise the continent- but persistent interference from especially the French, led to increasing military activity and a decision to finally defeat the French, and the Native forces who supported them.

England did eventually prevail and control was established over all but several of the larger independent, Princely States with whom Britain established amicable relationships.

All went relatively smoothly until paranoia about a perceived threat that Russia would invade India from the north, precipitated the First Afghan war in 1846. Subsequent humiliating defeats and a disastrous retreat from Kabul, combined with later disasters began to sow the seeds of dissent in certain political minds in India.

The rebellion of the Bengal Army (there were two other armies: Madras and Bombay) in 1857, known as the Great Mutiny, was caused by many factors that could and should have been avoided.

This resulted in the East India Company finally losing its charter and the British government taking direct control.

Military incompetence leading to further humiliating defeats by the Zulus and the Afghans in 1878-80 at Isandlwana and Maiwand plus dramatic events in the first half of the 20th century resulted in Britain’s presence in India becoming increasingly difficult and finally untenable.

The division of India in 1947 to create Pakistan, known as Partition, and the dreadful, religious violence that ensued will be the subject of a second talk.

Ancient Egypt SUSPENDED until further notice @ Salon de Actos, Espai la Senieta
Apr 19 @ 10:30 – 12:00
Frequency: Monthly: 3rd Monday, at 10:30
Venue: Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira

Group leader: David Rohl

Bedouins passing by Mount Sinai

The Ancient Egypt group is dedicated to the study of pharaonic Egypt from the Predynastic Age to the absorption of the Nile valley into the Roman Empire in 30 BC. Over the course of the project, we will be covering many different aspects of Egyptian civilisation, some of which you won’t be able to read about in popular books on the subject. But, don’t let that put you off! The presentations will be easy to follow and full of wonderful visuals … so you can just relax and let the magic of Egypt and the rest of the Ancient World wash over you like the gentle waters of the River Nile.

The group is led by one of the world’s best-known Egyptologists – writer, TV presenter, renowned international lecturer, historian and archaeologist, David Rohl, who has spent more than fifty years exploring the landscapes of the ancient Near East – from the high mountain valleys of Eden in mythical Persia to the vast barren deserts bordering ancient Kemet (the ‘Black Land’ = the Nile valley). He is best known for his internationally acclaimed TV documentary series ‘Pharaohs and Kings’, ‘In Search of Eden’, ‘The Egyptian Genesis’, and as a leading figure in the multi-award-winning cinema documentary ‘Patters of Evidence – The Exodus’. David has also written five bestselling books translated into twelve languages.

David Rohl, presenter of Pharaohs and Kings (Channel Four and Discovery Channel 1995).The group meets every third Monday of the month at the Salon de Actos, in la Senieta theatre, Moraira, starting at 10.30am and finishing around midday. Each meeting begins with a seventy-minute (or so) presentation on the day’s subject, employing David’s stunning visuals and informative graphics. Group members are then encouraged to participate in a Q & A discussion for the remaining fifteen minutes of the session.

Due to David’s international lecturing, archaeological research and TV commitments, there may be occasions in the year when he will be away and the lecture is postponed to the following month. However, confirmation of each lecture will be notified to all members, approximately one week before the meeting, giving the lecture title and a short explanation of the subject.

The monthly talks are not always entirely restricted to Egypt, since David will be throwing in the occasional lecture on the history and archaeology of the Old Testament, the ‘Heroic Age’ of Bronze Age Greece, the Minoan bull-leaping culture of Crete, the warlike Hittites of Anatolia (modern Turkey), and the ancient civilisations of Mesopotamia (modern Iraq and Syria), as well as some ‘specials’ on completely different but nevertheless fascinating topics such as the legendary epic tale of the Trojan War and the Romano-Spanish traditions surrounding the Sangreal (‘Holy Grail’).
