Cleopatra's Era in Images, Artifacts

A new exhibit at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia prompted our discussion today of the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and the layers of myth and history surrounding her story. Below are some images from the excavation that produced artifacts featured in the exhibit, and from the show itself. All images and explanations are courtesy of the Franklin Institute; the exhibit runs through Jan. 2, 2011.
