Ancient Egypt is more amazing than most of us even realize. Join Julie Scott, Director of the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, in exploring some of the most compelling sites in ancient Egypt, including: the Valley of the Whales, with hundreds of ancient whale fossils proving the evolution of whales from land animals to marine mammals; the saltwater Lake Moeris, which the ancient historian Herodotus described as having two giant pyramids in its center; and the Giza Plateau complex with the Great Sphinx and Pyramids and some of their more hidden mysteries. Prepare to be amazed!
How old is ancient?
The Ancient Egyptians lived deep in the past, but that past spanned nearly 6,000 years and continues to this day! Come join us at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum where we work together to build a large-scale interactive timeline of Ancient Egypt. We will explore how some of our artifacts, pivotal world moments, monumental structures, and charismatic pharaohs fit into the not-so-distant past of Egyptian history.
Some of the questions you might answer:
1. Did Cleopatra VII live closer to the present or to the building of the pyramids?
2. When did King Tut live compared to the founding of Rome?
3. What type of artifacts would you find in the Middle Kingdom?
4. When were the first and last Egyptian Hieroglyphs made?
This workshop is free and does not require reservations. Participation in this workshop will count towards the Junior Archaeologist Program graduation. We look forward to seeing you there!
