What Is Archaeology? Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, Virtual Tour   

Z  Online Class:  A Zoom invitation link will be sent one day before class begins.

Join us online as we tour the highlights of the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. The Kelsey Museum houses more than 100,000 objects representing the cultures of ancient Mesopotamia, Iran, Egypt, Greece, and the Roman Empire. More than 60% of the collections at the Kelsey come from excavations conducted by University of Michigan archaeologists in the early 1920s and 1930s. Our Zoom talk today will explore the theme of "What is archaeology?" Archaeology is defined as the study of human history through the material culture which was left behind. As you virtually tour the galleries, keep in mind the following questions: "What can this artifact tell me about the person who made or used it? What information is provided about the object? What more would I want to know?" This virtual tour will be facilitated by Kelsey Museum’s docent staff.
