Ancient Technologies is a collaborative student exhibition developed in partnership with capstone course ANCH3030 Special Topic in Roman History and the RD Milns Antiquities Museum.

Ancient Technologies Student Exhibition Opening

Throughout Semester 2, 2019, students enrolled in the Ancient History capstone course ANCH3030 Special Topic in Roman History have been working with their industry partner, the RD Milns Antiquities Museum, to curate a special exhibition Ancient Technologies. By incorporating ancient artefacts from the collection, 107 interns, working collaboratively in groups of 5-6 with Museum staff, explore several important ancient technological advancements and achievements that have influenced the ancient Mediterranean and modern worlds. Please join us in celebrating this inaugural Work Integrated Learning research partnership, and the innovative work of the ANCH3030 students, who will be on hand at the event to discuss their group and individual contributions to the exhibition.

Light refreshments will be served from 6:00pm and a paid bar (card payments only) will be in operation for alcoholic beverages. Non-alcoholic beverages will be served at no charge.
