Dr. Steve is BACK! ("I Want My Mummy," CSI Egypt) to talk about x-raying pharohs! Did you know X-ray technology was invented in 1895? Did you know that Egyptian mummies were among the very first things ever x-rayed, and that the first publication of a radiograph was by an Egyptologist? This lecture traces the amazing successes in reconstructing ancient Egyptian lives via the development of radiological technology from the advent of x-rays to the use of CT-scanning. You will literally travel inside the mummies of some of ancient Egypt’s most famous kings, Egypt’s non-royal elite, and even inside mummies that are not even human. Explore what it was like to actually be an ancient Egyptian.
