What the Ancient Egyptians Took with Them—and Why

Speaker Dr. Betsy Bryan, Johns Hopkins University

 

Sunday, March 29th, 1:00 p.m.

 

Included with Museum Admission

 

 

Mendes Cohen spent several months travelling in Egypt building a wonderful collection of antiquities that would later go on to form the basis of the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum. We are very excited to be welcoming museum director Prof. Betsy Bryan to talk about the collection Mendes developed and the Egypt Mendes would have encountered during his travels.
