Saturday, September 22, 2018
2:00-3:00 PM
Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Map
When you visit the Kelsey Museum, do you find yourself wondering how the artifacts on display were excavated? What techniques were used in the 1920s versus today? What can an artifact really tell us about the life of someone who lived thousands of years ago and very far away? On this tour, we’ll answer these questions by looking closely at artifacts from the ancient Near East, Greece, Egypt, and Rome. Plus, you don’t want to miss the drone and earth resistance meter on display in Urban Biographies — two pieces of cutting-edge technology used by University of Michigan archaeologists in the field.

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.
