Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs
Now through January 5
Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs explores the mysterious world of ancient Egypt through the fabric of its ancient mummies.
Part historic journey and part forensic adventure, Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs follows researchers and explorers as they piece together the archaeological and genetic clues of Egyptian mummies. The film tells the story of one of the greatest finds in modern history: the late 19th century discovery of a cache of forty mummies, including twelve Kings of Egypt, among them the legendary Rameses the Great.
In addition to increasing our understanding of the distant past, scientists are reconstructing mummy DNA and deciphering ancient texts to gain insight into modern human genetics and possibly improve medical treatments. Mummies follows the exploits of prominent Egyptologist and mummy specialist Dr. Bob Brier, who in the ancient Egyptian tradition mummified a modern body donated to science, as well as Dr. Angelique Corthals, a DNA expert who is attempting to extract key genetic information from ancient mummies in an effort to advance modern medicine.
*Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs has an alternative title of Egypt 3-D: Secrets of the Mummies. We apologize for any confusion. The film's content is the same.
