And including the official opening of the unique exhibition:

previously shown only at George’s Chapel, Windsor castle.
In the presence of HRH Prince Mohammed bin Nawaf Al Saud, Saudi Ambassador to the UK

Organised by the Centre for Gulf Studies (http://huss.exeter.ac.uk/iais/centres/g ulf/index.php) at the University of Exeter, this continues an illustrious tradition of Exeter conferences on the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf region. The Call for papers is now closed and the programme finalised, but all are very welcome to join in for a very rich menu of scholarship and debate!

The Centre, part of the Institute of Arab & Islamic Studies (IAIS), has a choice location in Britain’s “most beautiful” university grounds (Michelin Green Guide), in the medieval cathedral city of Exeter, set amidst the rolling hills of Devon, a stone’s throw from Dartmoor (http://www.exeterandessentialdevon.com/ )
