Martha Roy's Egyptian Artifacts on Display in the Library

The Muskingum College Library is currently displaying Egyptian artifacts donated to the college archive by Martha Roy (Class of 1935). Ms Roy is 92 years old and currently living in Cairo. The display includes decorative clay pieces, oil lamps, pottery shards, mummy beads, and a Ushebti, which was buried with the dead to assist them in the afterlife. We have created an on-line Martha Roy Library display for those Muskingum College community members and friends that cannot make it to campus this summer to view the display in person.
