11 a.m.-3 p.m. Nov. 9, 16. The ancient world was full of perfumes – from oils used to scent or heal the body to aromatic incense burned in homes and temples. The ancient Mesopotamians and Assyrians developed scented oils suitable for hair, beard, and body using fragrant plants, flowers, resins, and spices. In this free, drop-in workshop, which complements the “Assyria: Palace Art of Ancient Iraq” exhibition, you can devise your own perfume incorporating ingredients used in antiquity and then bring the past home with you.
