PRASHANTHI SUBBIAH

About: "My name is Prashanthi Subbiah. I am a rising Third Year History Major at KREA University, Sri City. I have been deeply interested in History since I was a little kid and love to explore the different fields that are linked to the subject. These fields include archaeology, journalism, and international and public affairs. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Stone Age during my time at SCHE and will never forget the skills and learnings I imbibed from here". 

Internship Dates: June 20th - July 15th, 2022

SURABHI TRIVADY

About: Surabhi Trivady is a third-year undergraduate student at Krea University joint-majoring in History and Politics. When she needs an escape from academic work, you’ll most probably find her with a fantasy novel (sometimes reading about made-up kingdoms is less stressful than reading about real ones). She plans to delve into archaeology in the years to come.

COMING SOON! WORKSHOP ON ANCIENT NUMISMATICS IN INDIA

NANDAN S. KAUSHIK

About: Nandan's Internship consisted of creating a numismatics module for school students in the Sharma Centre. Through research and curation he put together a set of teaching guides in the form of posters and cards, and it culminated in a workshop with 40 middle school students. Along with the material prepared, Nandan also learned about stone tools, their style and use, and production through hands-on experiments and handling of prehistoric stone tool artefacts.

Internship Dates: 20th June 2022 to 23rd July 2022

ACHEULIAN LARGE FLAKE REDUCTION SEQUENCES (Poster and Video) 

SUDHAMSHU HATTANGADI

About: "I am pursuing my Master’s degree in Ancient Indian History, Culture and Archaeology at Somaiya Vidyavihar University, Mumbai currently. The question “why are we (humans) the way we are?” arouses curiosity and contemplation in me and has made me interested in learning about human beings (the development of human behaviour, cognition and culture) as well as human evolution. Therefore, the fields of archeology and anthropology (as well as aesthetics) have fascinated me since a long time. I wish to pursue a career in the fields of archaeology and palaeoanthropology and the internship at the Sharma Centre for Heritage Education (SCHE) has acted as a catalyst for it. The internship introduced me to lithic technology and experimental archaeology and the latest trends in the field of paleoarchaeology. The practical training I received under expert guidance helped me absorb the theoretical aspects of stone tool technology in an effective manner".

Internship Dates: July 11-30th, 2022

VISHNU MENON


About: At the time of my internship, I am a second-year student at Ashoka University, Sonepat, Haryana, majoring in history and intAnational relations. History has always attracted me as a way to find out how similar, yet different humans have been throughout time. The internship at the Sharma Centre helped me gain valuable insights into the lives of early hominins, and gave me a look into the world of archaeological research.

Internship Dates: July 11-30th, 2022
