FILM: The Future of the Past (2000)
During the remainder of September we celebrate Archaeology Awareness Month in Illinois with showings of four episodes from Lost Worlds: The Story of Archaeology (2000). This intriguing historical overview begins with the unearthing of the ruins at Pompeii in the 18th century. It continues with how archaeologists then turned treasure seeking and searching for the origins of civilization. The series ends with ways the latest scientific techniques and technologies are making a major impact on the future of the past.
Each Sunday afternoon, enjoy the best in documentary films on the ancient Middle East. Unless otherwise noted, showings begin at 2:00 PM in Breasted Hall, run approximately 30 – 50 minutes, and are free.
