Saturday, March 4, 2 - 3 pm

In the third millennium BCE, royal women held positions of considerable authority in Mesopotamia. Among the many people who worked for them were teams of women, often employed in textile manufacture. Presented by Dr. Amanda Podany, professor emeritus of history at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, this lecture reconstructs the details of these women’s lives and professions through this era’s extensive cuneiform records.

A book signing for Dr. Podany's book, Weavers, Scribes, and Kings: A New History of the Ancient Near East will immediately follow the lecture. The book will be available for sale at the Legion of Honor Museum Store and online.

This lecture is free and open to the public. It is also a hybrid event.
