Dr. Steve Phillips, from the University of Pennsylvania's Museum of Archeaology and Anthropology, returns to the library with another fascinating lecture. This time, Dr. Steve will explore the science
behind ancient Egyptians mummies. He'll discuss how the mummification process developed through time, how mummies were actually made, and will explore why they hold such a fascination in popular
culture. A number of illustrations in this talk are images of actual ancient Egyptian mummies, many collected as part of Dr. Phillips's own research in Egypt.
