In May and June of 2016, researchers at the Kelsey Museum are joining forces with scholars in other University of Michigan units to examine two structures from Karanis in Egypt.
The Kelsey Museum of Archaeology supports teaching and research on Classical, Egyptian, and Near Eastern archaeology through stewardship of its rich collections, an active exhibitions program, and sponsorship of ongoing field research. The Kelsey houses a collection of more than 100,000 artifacts, of which approximately 1,500 are on permanent display; in addition, the Museum mounts 2-3 special exhibitions annually. As an exhibit museum at a public university, the Kelsey embraces a vigorous public outreach mission, engaging with local residents and visitors of all ages, from kindergarten through retirement. It also serves as the headquarters of the University of Michigan’s graduate program in Classical Art and Archaeology.
This video—directed by Rob DeMilner and funded by a U-M Transforming Learning for the Third Century grant and the Language Resource Center—introduces the Kelsey's history and collections.
We strive to support the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts on the front lines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Kelsey needs you—because the world needs Victors.
