Oriental Institute Museum

Join Emily Teeter, Egyptologist, as she explores the many ways that people in ancient Egypt communicated with the gods and with their deceased relatives and friends. This talk will highlight objects in the gallery that document the astounding ease with which people communicated with the beyond, and will address the social impact of that communication.

Explore the ancient world with a 45-minute gallery talk in the Oriental Institute Museum. Travel to a time and place beyond the University to learn about archaeological discoveries, unlock the secrets of civilization, and gain a greater appreciation of our ancestors.
