LECTURE SERIES: Ankhefenmut: From Temple to Museum

In this lecture series we will feature international archaeologists, curators and scholars who will share their insights into ancient Egyptian life, art, funerary practices, and material culture. We will also delve into Egyptomania- Western culture's fascination with ancient Egypt as well as recent scientific advances that have led to new revelations about the mummies seen by four generations of Albany Institute audiences.

Bob Brier, Senior Research Fellow, Long Island University, C.W. Post Campus

The Egyptians mummified for nearly 3,000 years, and the process changed over the centuries. Bob Brier will describe the various phases of mummification and exactly what was done to the mummy of Ankhefenmut. He will also share what we learned from the study of Ankhefenmut's mummy and what future discoveries are possible from the study of mummies.

FREE with museum admission.
