Meet Our Expert
Katy Blanchard is the Fowler/Van Santvoord Keeper of the Near Eastern Collections at the Penn Museum. She studied Classical and Near Eastern archaeology at Bryn Mawr College before completing her master’s thesis on Mussolini’s use of Augustan monuments for Fascist propaganda at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. She has worked as a field archaeologist for over 20 years digging at archaeological sites in Italy, Syria, and Israel. In 2015 she traveled with the Ark of the Covenant from Fort Worth to Edmonton as part of an Indiana Jones exhibit sponsored by Lucas Films. She was serenaded by a mariachi band at the border to Canada when the agents got excited about the contents of the truck. In spite of all this, she has never dressed as Indiana Jones, however she did dress as Willie Scott (from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) as part of an archaeology fashion show in college.
