Death & Burial: A Cross-cultural Examination
View of Egyptian coffins and other objects for the afterlife on display in ROM Galleries of Africa: Egypt
Explore how cultures from around the world and throughout time have dealt with that one inescapable truth in life: death. Archaeologist Alexis McBride will share diverse burial practices using ROM collections, and examine how archaeologists use burial patterns to explore health, identity, gender, and other aspects of past cultures. Participants will have the opportunity to handle a variety of different objects as part of this workshop.
Registration includes lunch.
