BLACKWOOD – A lecture on Egyptian Archeology at the University of Pennsylvania will be given April 17 at Camden County College’s Blackwood campus.
Egyptian Archeology at the University of Pennsylvania is the fifth and final installment of Archeology and Anthropology through the Curator’s Eye, a series of lectures within the greater series Museum Diaries and intended to raise awareness of museums and their value to society. Like the other entries in the series, it will feature images provided by scholars and curators and will be followed by a trip to a museum.
Dr. David Silverman, Eckley B. Cox Jr. professor of Egyptology at the University of Pennsylvania and curator of the Egyptian Section of the Archeology and Anthropology Museum there, will present “the extensive Egyptian collections, ongoing research and mission of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archeology and Anthropology,” according to the Museum Diaries schedule.
The lecture series is organized by Joshua Roberson, who has been a professor at Camden County College for three years and teaches Egyptian History, World Civilizations 1 and 2, and Honors World Civilization 1.
