Guest Speaker: Dr. Bob Brier
"Mummification: Resurrection of an Ancient Art"

In 1994, using ancient tools and materials, Bob Brier and Ronald Wade became the first people in 2,000 years to mummify a human cadaver in the ancient Egyptian style. Working at the University of Maryland Medical School, the two researchers used replicas of ancient tools to remove the brain through the nose and the internal organs through a three-inch abdominal incision. The project was the subject of the National Geographic television documentary, Mr. Mummy. Join Dr. Brier as he discusses his findings of his mummification project and how it illuminates the ancient Egyptian knowledge of anatomy and medicine.

About Dr. Bob Brier

Egyptologist and Author. Bob Brier has traveled the world and published nine books on the topics of Egyptology and mummies.

Affectionately known as Mr. Mummy, Dr. Brier is recognized as one of the world's foremost experts on mummies and Egyptology. As Senior Research Fellow at Long Island University/LIU Post in Brookville, New York, he has conducted pioneering research in mummification practices and has investigated some of the world's most famous mummies, including King Tut, Vladimir Lenin, Ramses the Great, Eva Peron (Evita), Marquise Tai (Chinese noblewoman), and the Medici family of Renaissance Italy.

In 1994, Dr. Brier became one the first people in 2,000 years to mummify a human cadaver in the ancient Egyptian style. The result was MUMAB — short for Mummy of University of Maryland at Baltimore— who has earned the distinction of being the first modern ancient mummy. Presently, MUMAB shows no signs of decay, suggesting that the mummification was a success. When not on tour with Mummies of the World: The Exhibition, currently on display at the Orlando Science Center, MUMAB is kept at the San Diego Museum of Man, where he is on permanent loan from the University of Maryland, School of Medicine.
