UCSD archaeologist's 1997 discoveries from ancient trade route will be exhibited
Professor Thomas Levy swung his leg over a donkey on a high desert plateau in Jordan in 1997. Ten days and about 95 miles later, the UC San Diego archaeologist had retraced an ancient metal mining trade route into Israel.

Now a chronicle of that expedition will be on display at the San Diego Museum of Man starting Sunday.

Called “Journey to the Copper Age,” the exhibit is intended to complement the Dead Sea Scrolls presentation at the San Diego Natural History Museum this summer.

Aha. It's an exhibit of both ancient stuff and pictures of and objects produced by the expedition.
