I WANT MY MUMMY

W/Stephen “Dr. Steve” Phillips, Ph.D.,  In an effort to better understand why ancient Egyptian mummies hold such a fascination in popular culture, this lecture presents a history of Western civilization’s centuries-long interaction with ancient Egypt’s human remains, how attitudes regarding those mummies changed through time, and, how mummy-related folklore still influences the modern world. This talk includes unpublished images of the actual mummies of several of Egypt’s most famous pharaohs, as well as behind the scenes images of 4,500 year-old mummies as they emerged from the sands during Dr. Phillips’ own recent archaeological excavations in the cemeteries adjacent to the Great Pyramids at Giza, Egypt.
