Archeology

Reptiles

As we go through this challenging time, many of us are still in Doha for the summer. So the steering committee has decided to extend as much as possible our activities during this hot season. In parallel with a sharp decrease in the transmission rate of the virus, and as the authorities are easing the restriction's measures, we should be able to organise some small outings. We are thinking of some Sunset and Sunrise walks in the desert, where we could enjoy the outdoors and hopefully make some beautiful observations. We shall, of course, respect the rules of social distancing, and adhere to the measures of the official phase. We should be able to send further announcements out shortly.

June Talk: talk #1 A New Approach for Understanding Prehistoric Populations of Qatar & talk #2 - Reptiles - An evolutionary success - My insight into the lizards of Qatar

Message From Chairman

We are very fortunate to have 2 very interesting topics this month.

First, we’ll have a team of researchers from Sidra Medicine, Qatar Museums, and the University of “Tor Vergata” (Italy) who will present their new approach for understanding Prehistoric Populations of Qatar.

Then fellow QNHG member, and year 12 student, Ramaswamy Narayanaswamy, will share his passion for reptiles and his discovery of the lizards of Qatar. This is quite inspiring and we’re very proud to have one our young members present the results of his findings.

This will be our 3rd social distancing talk this season, and we’ll use the Zoom Communication suite. It is very easy to set up and use from all Operating Systems, Desktops (PC, Mac, Linux) and Mobile devices (iOS and Android).
