Albany Institute Lecture Series: Pyramids, Mummies, and Magic
Lanny Bell's examination of the way the ancient Egyptians faced the all-too-familiar problem of death will reveal that, rather than being obsessed with death, they were obsessed with life. Bell will share how the Egyptians' preparations for death reveal their association of three fundamental characteristics of ancient Egyptian culture: pyramids, mummies, and works of art deposited as grave goods.
