 In an effort to better understand why ancient Egyptian mummies hold such a fascination in our popular culture, this highly illustrated lecture explores the cultural shistory of our interaction with the world of ancient Egyptian mummies, including, how these mummies were actually made, and, how ancient Egypt’s mummies still influence modern life. This talk includes unpublished images of the actual mummies of several of Egypt’s most famous pharaohs, as well as behind the scenes images of 4,500 year-old mummies as they emerged from the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 archaeological excavations in the cemeteries adjacent to the Great Pyramids in Egypt.
