Queens, Warriors, and Archaeologists: Women of the Penn Museum

March 5, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Organizer: Penn Museum

Where: Virtual


Women are often invisible in our accounts of the past, overshadowed by more famous men. This virtual program 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. Join us as we illustrate how different societies think of womanhood and gender, and see how women are represented and self-represent across time and space.

We encourage all tour participants to purchase dinner or to-go drinks from a woman-owned business to be enjoyed during our live program! If you are located in Philadelphia, try one of our favorites below.
