X-raying the Pharaohs: A Look inside the Mummy @ The Hoyt

xraying the Pharoahs (1)

The Hoyt Library, as part of the Luzerne County Libraries free lecture series – Uncover, Secrets from the Sands of Ancient Egypt – is proud to present Stephen R. Phillips, Ph.D., from the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, who will present an exciting journey into the reconstruction of ancient Egyptian lives via the use of radiological technology on Thursday, November 7th, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m., in the community room of the library.

This lecture traces the amazing successes from the advent of x-rays, which were invented in 1895, to the use of current CT-scanning, to literally travel inside the mummies of some of Egypt’s most famous kings, Egypt’s non-royal elite, and even inside the mummies that are not even human.

Come and explore what it was like to actually be an ancient Egyptian!

Light refreshments will be served.
