When we think of mummies—often the first thing that comes to mind is Ancient Egypt—we envision monsters coming back to life to walk the earth once again. This lecture explores the world of preserved human remains—through time and across continents—a 5,000-year journey. There exists an amazing diversity of preserved human remains; some created deliberately, some naturally, on virtually all continents, in all time periods. Enhanced by high quality images of preserved human remains, the lecture takes us on journey from this life to the afterlife by letting these past lives speak for themselves once again. Presented by Dr. Steve Phillips.
