Secrets of the Silk Road - More Online Lectures...

In honor of their Silk Road exhibition, The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology has created a 9 part lecture series dedicated to the Silk Road.  Once a month from October through June 2011, a different Silk Road scholar shares their view of the famous trade route.

For those that live in the Philadelphia area, you can still reserve a ticket for the last 3 lectures.

 As a baseball coach and father of an 18 month old son, the 6pm time frame is a little tight for me, but perhaps I can have short practice and miss the bedtime routine in exchange for some knowledge.
