Event Details

What do bakers, manicurists, and stone carvers have in common? They all represent professions with roots in the ancient world. With generous funding from the Illinois State Humanities Council, the Oriental Institute engaged two sixth-grade classes in an oral-history project that connected them through their families and friends with these and other ancient professions. Come celebrate the students' achievements. The presentations will be on view followed by a reception.

Free. Registration is strongly recommended but not required.
