The Kelsey Museum of Archaeology is home to a treasure store of artifacts from the Greco-Roman world – from gold coins to glass flasks, from the smallest items of ancient daily life to large vases painted with exquisite detail. This is due in large part to the tireless efforts of the museum’s namesake, Francis W. Kelsey, who believed that actual artifacts from antiquity would better help his students to understand the ancient world. A required visit for many students taking Classical Civilization courses, the Kelsey has become a memorable part of the U-M experience for generations of Wolverines looking to understand the ancient past.
