Object Lessons brings together ancient and modern Egyptian artifacts from the Center for the Tebtunis Papyri and the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology in an exhibition in The Bancroft Library Gallery and Corridor. In the gallery, we invite you to explore how items from everyday life were created and discarded, excavated and conserved, from antiquity to the present day. The corridor showcases the innovative research being carried out on the Egyptian collections at the University of California, Berkeley, that continues to push scholarship forward in the twenty-first century. The things humans create often last beyond a single lifetime. Join us in considering the new lessons we can learn from the past lives of objects.
