About this Project

The Animals in the Kelsey! website was designed by the CHICO team in collaboration with Professor Susan Alcock, the students of Classical Civilization 452, Foods in the Ancient World, and the museum professionals at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology. Contributions to the website were made by students from one of Ann Arbor's middle schools, with tremendous help and cooperation from Barbara Quinn.

The Animals in the Kelsey! museum exhibit was organized and designed by the members of the University of Michigan's Classical Civilization 452, Food in the Ancient World, during fall semester 2000. The students collaborated with the staff of the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, and students at the University of Michigan's
School of Art.

This exhibition was made possible by a grant from the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching and the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program.

This website was created by graduate student members of the Cultural Heritage Initiative for Community Outreach (CHICO), based at the University of Michigan's School of Information. The CHICO members worked closely with Professor Sue Alcock, the students in CC 452, and the museum professionals at the Kelsey Museum. We greatly appreciate the work of everyone involved and thank them for this opportunity to collaborate with them.
