Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs
August 5 at 12:30 pm – 1:20 pm
Using archaeological discoveries and genetics data, researchers and explorers piece together clues from mummies to better understand the culture, religion, medicine and daily life of antiquity. Relics and bodies provide a window into the world of the pharaohs and — by reconstructing the DNA — scientists hope to better understand present-day genetics and to advance medical treatments.
