For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by ancient history and archaeology. Back in high school I spent many hours at the Institute for the Study of Ancient Cultures, formerly known as the Oriental Institute. It is still a priority when I visit Chicagoland.
Links to some pictures I took many years ago:
