In this tour, we are going to focus on some of the strong, powerful women of the ancient world—the goddesses! We will take a look at Kelsey Museum artifacts related to goddesses of ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and the Middle East and talk about their powers. We will also focus on how these goddesses were incorporated into the daily lives of ancient people.
