Ask an Archaeologist sat down with Adam Aja, Assistant Curator of Collections at the Harvard Semitic Museum to answer user submitted archaeological questions.
Founded in 1889, the Harvard Semitic Museum houses more than 40,000 Near Eastern artifacts, mostly from museum-sponsored excavations in Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Syria, and Tunisia. We use these collections to investigate and teach Near Eastern archaeology, history, and culture. The Harvard Semitic Museum is one of the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture (HMSC).
Closing from 12pm on Dec. 24th through Jan. 4th. Reopening at 10am on Jan. 5th.
