Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Map
We cannot exist without water today, and this was equally true in the ancient world. From hydrating our bodies and our crops to transporting goods across countries and even continents, humans are dependent upon water in numerous ways. Join us for this Saturday Samper Tour to view some ancient artifacts that provide a window into how ancient people controlled and utilized water in their daily lives. See a water pipe inscribed with its donor’s name, which was used to carry water through town; a filter to keep those nasty little pebbles out of your drinking water; and, of course, a kylix to enjoy your beverage at a Greek symposium.

This event is free and open to all visitors. If you have any questions or concerns regarding accessing this event, please visit our accessibility page at or contact the education office by calling (734) 647-4167. We ask for advance notice as some accommodations may require more time for the university to arrange.
