The Daily Dig

One artifact. Three minutes. Endless insights.

The Penn Museum is home to remarkable objects and their powerful stories. While the Museum is temporarily closed due to COVID-19, we remain open for exploration—and we’ve taken our Daily Digs online. Together, we’ll dig into a 3-minute exploration of an extraordinary artifact. Gain deeper insights into its history, cultural context, caretaking, and more while you hear the unique perspectives of archaeologists, anthropologists, scientists, conservators, archivists, and other Museum specialists..
