Dr. Bob Brier
Egyptologist and Senior Research Fellow at the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University in Brookville, New York, and one of the world’s foremost experts on mummies.
At 8 pm, Dr. Brier’s lecture, The Murder of Tutankhamun. Three thousand years ago, King Tutankhamun, aged only 19, died mysteriously. Using an examination of the king’s skull, a letter from Tutankhamun’s widowed queen and a royal ring, in this talk Dr. Brier will unravel the mystery of the boy king’s death and present his theory that the young pharaoh was murdered.
