Saturday Sampler Tour | Artifact Exploration: All About Amphoras

Saturday, February 16, 2019
2:00-3:00 PM
Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Map
Amphoras are some of the most interesting artifacts in the Kelsey Museum, and they provoke a lot of questions! What is up with those pointy bottoms? How heavy were they when they were full? What was used to stopper the opening at the top? (But seriously — why so pointy? How does that even work?) On this short Artifact Exploration mini-tour, we’ll take a deeper look and find out what makes an amphora so special.

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.
