Cleopatra, last pharaoh of Egypt, may be the most famous female ruler in all of history.  But her Roman enemies made her notorious for all the wrong reasons: her political ambitions, her sumptuous lifestyle, and above all her love affairs with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.  Yet if we look past the long-standing stereotypes of popular culture, from Plutarch and Shakespeare to Elizabeth Taylor and Hollywood, the archaeological evidence paints a very different picture.  In this illustrated lecture, we will tour the Egypt that Cleopatra inherited from her Ptolemaic ancestors, view her self-cho

The island of Crete has never received sufficient attention in discussions of the Roman economy. Well positioned along East-West and North-South trade routes, Crete’s economy flourished throughout Roman history as a transshipment point for goods travelling across the Mediterranean and as an exporter in its own right.  The most visible export shipped from the island’s shores was wine packaged in ceramic amphorae.  These amphorae have been found in almost every province of the Roman world, indicating the large scale of this export trade.

Celebrate National Archaeology Day with us as we prowl through time to explore the role of cats in cultures around the world and through time. We'll climb up the cat family tree. And look into the future as we ponder what archaeologists will think about the plethora of cat videos. If you would like to create your own cat video, we'll show it on the screen during Family Day - just send a link to museumed@colorado.edu.
