Famous Female Rulers of the Ancient World at the Museum of Anthropology
Please join us at the Museum of Anthropology on Saturday, July 27, for this exciting event! From Artemisia, ruler of Halicarnassus, to Hatshepsut and Cleopatra of Egypt, women have held the highest offices and led their people for thousands of years. An illustrated lecture at 1 p.m. will trace the history of the most well-known female rulers of ancient times. Throughout the day there will be docent-lead tours of our "Life and Death on the Nile: The After Life in Egypt’s New Kingdom" exhibit. Kids can make their own crowns and learn to write their names in hieroglyphics. The museum is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and admission is always FREE!
