Free online live launch invitation - Jericho: An Ancient City Revealed

(4 June 2021)

A group of MA Museum and Artefact Studies students at Durham University have been developing an online exhibition called 'Jericho: An Ancient City Revealed' as part of their course, alongside Durham University’s Oriental Museum. The exhibition centres on pioneering archaeologist Dame Kathleen Kenyon and her influential work at the site of Ancient Jericho/Tell es-Sultan - one of the oldest cities in the world. The project centres on the museum’s fantastic collection from Kenyon’s excavations at Tell es-Sultan, including objects which have never before been displayed. The exhibition will be launched alongside a podcast series and educational resources on 10 June. If this event is of interest to you or your colleagues, please RSVP by sending an email to zoe.a.rankin@durham.ac.uk by Wednesday 9 June, 5pm.

They would like to invite you to the free online live launch of 'Jericho: An Ancient City Revealed', to be held via Zoom on Thursday 10 June, 5.30pm.

The event will consist of:

an introduction to Dame Kathleen Kenyon’s excavations at Ancient Jericho; a short talk by the Oriental Museum’s curator on the new Silk Roads Gallery; a closer look at some of the artefacts excavated by Kenyon with the aid of our visualiser; and a Q&A, where you can also request to see your favourite objects from the Jericho collection closer up.

The Zoom link and details will be emailed to respondents on the day of the event. You will be required to download Zoom onto your laptop, desktop, tablet, or phone before joining the event.
