Aegean Age Art at Arthur Ross
Americans in the Aegean Bronze Age: The Discovery of Minoan and
Mycenaean Civilizations is at the Arthur Ross Gallery now
through March 24, with an opening reception at 5 p.m. on January
With over fifty original artifacts such as
the late Minoan I Rhyton (clay) c. 1700-1450 B.C. from
Crete (pictured here), from Penn's Museum of Archaeology
and Anthropology and Harvard's Peabody Museum, the exhibit also
features original watercolors of unique ceramic artifacts as well
as archival photographs of excavations dating back to the early
1900s. Penn archaeologists' works are portrayed in 20 panels with
text and photographs from the individual sites.
This exhibit was organized in cooperation
with the Institute for Aegean Prehistory on the occasion of meetings
in Philadelphia of the Archaeological Institute of America, the
American Philological Association, and the American Schools of
Oriental Research. For more images, visit www.upenn.edu/almanac/v48/n16/
