Virtual Saturday Sampler Tour | Excavating Karanis, Part 2

Saturday, August 7, 2021
2:00-3:00 PM
Saturday Sampler tours are back! We've missed you and are thrilled to be offering our Saturday Sampler tours virtually. Join us over Zoom to explore the Kelsey Museum from the comfort of your home.

The theme of this week's tour is "Excavating Karanis, Part 2."
The Kelsey Museum's excavations at Karanis, Egypt, in the 1920s and '30s yielded a premier collection of objects of daily life as well as being an early example of meticulous documentation and record-keeping. Using photos from the excavations and items in the Kelsey's collection, Part 1 of this Zoom tour focuses on the houses uncovered in the excavations as well as their contents. Part 2, on August 7, focuses on the temples and granaries.
