Join the crew for a digital journey to Egypt! Examine art of the pharaohs to decipher their ancient codes of communication. Discover what mummies don’t take with them to the afterlife, and follow along with an ancient story that explains why mummies are wrapped. Your fellow voyagers will help you explore along the way! This special edition of Global Voyagers is presented as part of of the Wawa Welcome America 2020 Festival and will be hosted via Facebook Live on the Penn Museum's page.
