“Dialogue of Civilizations” is a National Geographic initiative that brings together archaeologists and experts to discuss their latest discoveries focusing on early civilizations from around the world. Experts of the five ancient literate civilizations (Egypt, Mesopotamia, Indus, China, and the Maya) are brought to one of the five regions to provide public lectures about archaeology and the modern world. These events bring together archaeologists that have studied civilizations to look for similarities and differences and what they can tell us about human society as a whole.
