The Roam From Home are FREE live interactive programs for adults that are held in collaboration with CILC and the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (Penn Museum).

 
                                                                    

The Roam from Home programs have been generously underwritten by the University of Pennsylvania

Open to all, the Penn Museum is home to remarkable objects and powerful stories that emerge from its excavations and research across the world. Connect with the cultures of Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the Mediterranean, from the very first cities of the Middle East to the pharaohs of ancient Egypt; from early Mexico to the lives of Native American communities today. Experience the richness of the ancient past, gain an understanding of our shared humanity, and find your own place in the arc of human history.

"I have watched 3 of these and hope you can continue all summer. I stay home as the governor requests and these are a highlight to my day!" - Vine LifeLong Learner Participant
