Happy 4th Birthday to Us!

While we aren’t marking the occasion with a celebratory cuneiform tablet, the way Paul Haupt, Professor of Semitic Languages at Johns Hopkins might have in 1901, we are thrilled to be 4!

Today is the 4th birthday of the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum’s new museum facility. The new exhibit and seminar space has made a tremendous difference in how the collection can be viewed by the public, used by faculty for teaching, and researched and cared for by staff and students. If you haven’t been able to see the new facility, please stop by! We will be open this Saturday from noon to 4pm. (Sorry, no birthday cake in the museum, but you can get a great cup of coffee and a treat at the nearby café).
