“Daily Life in Pharaonic and Graeco-Roman Egypt”

March 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$10.00 - $35.00
Brian Muh

Did you know that under ancient Egyptian law, women had the same rights as men? Or that married couples could divorce? Brian Muhs, Associate Professor of Egyptology,  will present an engaging talk on daily life in Pharaonic and Graeco-Roman Egypt, illustrated with passages from ancient texts and archaeological explorations of ancient settlements. 

 

Founded by James Henry Breasted – the original “Indiana Jones” – the Oriental Institute’s collection of antiquities includes ancient artifacts from archeological sites around the world, saved from grave robbers and modern construction, and rivaling exhibits at the Louvre and British Museum.
