The English Language Institute and Kelsey Museum of Archeology team up to offer a special tour of the Kelsey’s current exhibition Excavating Archaeology at the University of Michigan, 1817-2017 specifically tailored to introduce international graduate students and others who speak English as a second or additional language the history of archaeology at UM and the Kelsey Museum and at the same time to provide them with an English language immersion experience.

Program Overview
Research about past cultures and societies through archaeology has been a part of the University of Michigan since its founding in 1817. And, so have museums as places for students and professors to engage with these cultures and societies. The exhibition Excavating Archaeology at the University of Michigan, 1817-2017, explores that history in the fields of archaeology and museums at the University of Michigan for the past 200 years. And, the exhibition looks forward to the future of archaeology and museums at Michigan in the coming century. The exhibition relies on carefully chosen objects, archival documents and images, and other illustrative materials to examine moments in the history of the University of Michigan’s involvements in archaeology and the location of archaeology in the University’s museum environment.

The tour will begin with a review of key terms and concepts to help participants enjoy a deeper understanding of the exhibition. It will conclude with a look through the permanent galleries of the Kelsey Museum.
