Scientists in Action: Ancient Mummies, New Discoveries

Program Description

Mummies draped in unwinding linens and rising from their tombs are staples of Halloween lore and decor, but Dr. Michele Koons knows that mummies aren’t frightening—they’re fascinating! As the curator of archaeology at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Dr. Koons uses modern technology to study ancient places and peoples and unravel mysteries of the past. What can mummies (and more) tell us about human history? What new discoveries will archaeologists make as technology advances? Find out during this live virtual field trip through time behind the scenes at the Museum.
