Neighbors at the Museum


Ever wondered why natural history museums often display ancient Egyptian material (and maybe stuff from other ancient civilizations)? I thought natural history was supposed to cover studies of the natural world (e.g. paleontology, zoology, geology, etc.), not man-made stuff like what the Egyptians produced. But then, I guess it’s more convenient for people like me who like both Egyptian and prehistoric stuff. You get to visit both worlds within a few hallways!
