LA Library hosts talk on Sudan

The Los Altos Library has scheduled the presentation “Timeless Sudan” 7-8:30 p.m. June 15 in the Program Room of the main library, 13 S. San Antonio Road.

Bruce Berger and his wife, Pam Perkins, traveled to Sudan last November to explore ancient archaeological sites and current digs, and to meet people from a culture far removed from Silicon Valley. In their presentation, they will discuss how they discovered that Sudan is one of the most ethnically, geographically and culturally diverse countries in Africa, with nomadic influences that blend with antiquities from ancient civilizations.
