Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Map
How was illness prevented and treated in the past? Who was your doctor, and what were their credentials? On this tour, learn more about the kind of medical care you might have received in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Artifact highlights include Roman medical tools, amulets, and food (part of many medical recipes).

You may also enjoy the online exhibition of "The Art and Science of Healing" (February 10 - April 30, 2017): http://exhibitions.kelsey.lsa.umich.edu/art-science-healing/

Saturday Sampler tours are free and open to all visitors. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend this tour, please contact the education office (734-647-4167) at least two weeks in advance. We ask for advance notice as some accommodations may require more time for the University to arrange.
