This proposal, prepared for Higgins Armory Museum Worcester, explores the scientific method of archaeology and its impact on relics in Higgins Armory Museum from the Dura-Europos dig in Syria in 1927 and nine seasons thereafter. Using literature on archaeology, the city of Dura-Europos, and the Dura-Europos dig, this project examines Higgins Armory Museum artifacts from the Dura-Europos dig, with respect to their original archaeological discovery. The final product is an exhibit based on the city with respect to nine artifacts from storage in the Higgins Armory Museum collection.
