Event Details

The Woods Hole Public Library will present a program about ancient code-writing for children led by long-time Woods Hole summer resident and educator, Ruth Gainer.

She will invite children to design codes and write secret messages on real papyrus from the Nile River in Egypt from her personal collection. She will show images of ancient hieroglyphs and other forms of early writing and explain the process of creating sheets of papyrus. The workshop is free and open to the public.
