Hidden In Plain Sight: U-M Papyrology Collection
The story of Egypt has been a vital component in explaining early world history. The stories continue to capture the imagination. Much of what we now know was captured through early writings and documentations made on what is called papyrus. Think of it as ancient paper. It just so happens the largest collection of Papyri in North America is right in our area. Walk through the U of M’s central campus Diag, in the doors to one of the school’s most recognizable buildings and, as 89.1 WEMU’s Jorge Avellan reports, you’ll discover a world that has been “Hidden in Plain Sight.”
WEMU (89.1 WEMU) is the public broadcasting service of Eastern Michigan University.
Hidden in Plain Sight: An occasional series that will introduce you to some of the people, places, and things that help comprise who we are as a community. These are parts of our community that, in some way, are making a difference, and yet, you may not be at all familiar with them. That’s why this feature series is called “Hidden in Plain Sight.”
