Event Type

Specialty Tours

Women are often invisible in our accounts of the past, overshadowed by more famous men. This tour explores ways to find women through archaeology and anthropology, tracing stories of famous and not-so-famous women in the Penn Museum, as well as tales of adventurous female archaeologists who have excavated ancient sites and translated undeciphered scripts. Artifacts illustrate the different ways that societies think of womanhood and gender, exploring how women self-represent and are represented across time and space.
