Questioning King Tut: Think Like an Archaeologist

I am NOT an Archaeologist. BUT, I have learned enough from their research and hard work to want to think (and especially ask questions like them)! Today, I’m taking a bit of a break from Mondays @ the Museum specific content to polish and rehearse for a “live” online tour of the Discovery Center of Idaho’s exhibition, King Tut: Treasures of the Tomb in partnership with Varsity Tutors, this Wednesday, November 18 at 5pm MST/ 7pmEST.

This week the state of Idaho stepped back into phase 2 of our re-opening plan in response to rising COVID-19 cases. As our museum has to cut back our in-person access to our exhibition, I am thrilled that we get to share our space virtually with a national audience!

As of this morning, over 5,000, nation-wide, have registered, and it’s growing! wow! No pressure!

Here’s a snippet from the Varsity Tutor class site for a little taste:

What can we learn about history by asking questions? Join the Discovery Center of Idaho on an expedition through time and their King Tut: Treasures of the Tomb exhibition. We’ll explore the stories we can uncover just by looking closely at and asking questions about the objects and materials left behind in King Tut’s tomb.

(I guess, I’m not straying too far from the original Mondays@ the Museum course through the Met! Class 3, we explored the same topic. Funny enough, my daughter’s 3rd grade teacher is using the course with her class, and when I got home from rehearsal at the museum, my daughter greeted me with, “Mommy! You were my teacher again today! We learned about Archaeologists and a carving with a human face and wings.” Learn more HERE. )

Make sure to click HERE to register for Wednesday’s FREE Varsity Tutor Class and next week, I’ll get back to Mondays @ the Museum, but for now…I’ve got to rehearse!
