Caroline Rocheleau is an Egyptologist, an archaeologist, a Nubiologist, and the curator of ancient art at the North Carolina Museum of Art. Oh! And she’s also a very proud Canadian. Caroline studied ancient Egypt and Nubia for so long the University of Toronto gave her both a Master’s and a PhD. She’s also received a BA in art history and a degree in art (she can’t paint to save her life but is pretty good at drawing). At the Museum she takes care of all the ancient art, does research on the collection, gives lectures, goes to conferences and visits other museums, writes articles, books, and blog posts, plans exhibitions, and goes to a lot of meetings. When she wants to run away from it all, she grabs her Tilley hat and her trowel and goes off on a dig.
