Maria holds a PhD in Archaeology and her field of specialism is organic architecture and ethnoarchaeology. She has carried out extensive fieldwork in Egypt, as well as being a university lecturer and museum guide. She co-founded El Arpa, an initiative showcasing culture and arts through events, articles and a podcast (People Will Talk).
Her latest book, The Stuff of Life: Ancient Inspiration for Sustainable Living, asks a question: if our connection to nature is such an inherent part of us as humans, what is hindering it now? This exciting book also explores a world where our rate of consumption is not feasible, and it takes a look at how organic materials and ancestral knowledge can help us achieve a more sustainable society.
The evening will include an interview, question and answers, a book signing and refreshments.
