This exhibit primarily focuses on the role of writing in two early urban societies, Mesopotamia and Egypt. The artifacts are roughly 4,300 to 3,000 years old. In the 19th century, museums and libraries throughout the Western world acquired cultural artifacts from ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, often from a desire to connect with what they considered the origins of Western civilization or Biblical History.

Presentation by Dr. Cynthia Williams Resor, Foundation Professor, College of Education, Eastern Kentucky University. This program will explore the lives of Kentucky women, free and enslaved, as Resor prepares recipes from early nineteenth century cookbooks such as Lettice Bryan’s The Kentucky Housewife. Reviewing how women produced, preserved, and prepared food in pre-industrial kitchens, Resor explores the often-overlooked “women’s work” of the past and present and how teaching it can enhance our understanding of everyday Americans.
