ARCE Lecture – Golden Age Archaeology in the Valley of the Kings, Monday Oct. 24

Hi all – Our ARCE lecture program kicks off Monday Oct. 24th at 7:30 with Sarah Ketchley, PhD, University of Washington, who will be speaking on the “Golden Age Archaeology in the Valley of the Kings: The Diaries of Mrs. Emma B. Andrews.” This should be a fascinating glimpse into old school Egyptology from the turn of the 20th Century, from a woman’s perspective.

Seating is limited, this venue is smaller than our lecture rooms have been in the past, so get there early, if you plan to attend!

Tickets $9, available now >
About the film:
When the American military landed on a remote island in the South Pacific during World War II, the islanders were amazed by America’s fantastic cargo – planes, trucks, refrigerators, canned food. They thought such goods could only come from the Gods. Led by the mysterious prophet John, a religion was born, the John Frum Movement, also known as a Cargo Cult.

The film, Waiting for Johnfollows the history, culture and conflict of this Cargo Cult religion from the perspective of the last believers on a remote island in the South Pacific islands of Vanuatu.
In the process this film asks, where do prophets come from? And what makes people believe?
