Dining in the age of Tutankhamen: Gift of the Nile


Dining in the age of Tutankhamun: Gift of the Nile

Having witnessed the recent widespread flooding of vast tracts of the country, you'll be fascinated to learn how the nourishing annual floods of the Nile contrast with the situation in Australia and other places in the world, including Brazil, which have been inundated with extraordinary water flows. On route, you'll discover society's reliance on water, agriculture and a stable plentiful food supply in order to prosper, grow rich, and provide the time and money to pursue art and scholarship.

Professor Rick Roush is Dean of the Melbourne School of Land and Environment. For over 30 years he has investigated integrated solutions for sustainable agriculture and land management, with a principal focus on pest and weed managment in natural and agricultural systems.
