June

June 10:  John Gaudet and How Papyrus Changed the World.  Since ancient Egypt, papyrus is a unique plant that is still one of the fastest growing plant species on earth.  It floats on water.  Its stems inspired the fluted columns of the ancient Greeks.  The papyrus bounty from the Nile delta provided not just paper for record keeping—instrumental to the development of civilization—but food, fuel and boats.  Mr. Gaudet will give a short Powerpoint history of papyrus.  This will be accompanied by replica Biblical codex/dead sea scrolls, and a demonstration of making papyrus.  His book How Papyrus Changed the World will also be for sale.
