Cleopatra: The Many Stories of the Last Pharaoh of Egypt | Egyptian Museum

February 24, 2024 @ 1:30 pm 2:30 pm

Travel back in time to the world of Cleopatra to learn some of the many stories of Cleopatra VII, one of the most intriguing women in all of history. We will then work as historians to carefully uncover the many layers of Cleopatra’s story, exploring how history is woven from different perspectives.

As we sift through tales from various eras, we’ll learn about the art of historiography—how historical narratives are shaped and reshaped over time. Uncover how biases and cultural viewpoints have potentially clouded our perspective of Egypt’s last Pharaoh. As a team, we will work to evaluate and contrast these diverse accounts, to separate myth from fact and discover the “true” Cleopatra!

Participation in this workshop will count towards the Junior Archaeologist Program graduation (grades K-12).
