Center for Ancient Studies
University of Pennsylvania

The University of Pennsylvania has long been acclaimed for its extraordinary resources in the study and teaching of the ancient world. The School of Arts and Sciences is home to an unusual number of distinguished scholars who specialize in various aspects of the ancient Old and New worlds – their languages, history, archaeology, anthropology, art history, philosophy, economy, politics, and sciences, to name only a few – and the Penn Museum houses a renowned collection of artifacts from the Americas, Asia, Polynesia, China, Africa, Egypt, the Ancient Near East, and the Greek, Roman, and Etruscan Worlds. The Center for Ancient Studies at the University of Pennsylvania strives to bring together students and faculty, as well as members of the greater Philadelphia community, who share a passion for the ancient world, through the promotion and support of events pertaining to pre-modern societies.

In addition, we compile a weekly e-newsletter of events of interest at Penn, in Philadelphia, and across the region.
