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.

Invisible Beauty: The Art of Archaeological Science

by Penn Museum

When people imagine archaeologists, they often picture someone working in the field, but new discoveries are constantly happening in the laboratory. Using instruments to reveal the microscopic and hidden world, archaeologists and anthropologists are able to answer questions related to technology, use, trade, diet, health, and the environment. Join us as we go under the microscope and bring this often-overlooked vantage point to life! Penn Ph.D. Candidate in Art and Archaeology of the Mediterranean World, Janelle Sadarananda, will uncover how these large format images of archaeological materials illuminate the astoundingly beautiful world around us, evoking a sense of wonder at multiple scales.
