The Egyptologist as chat show star

Egyptologists are not often seen as 'celebrities' and are certainly not guests on TV chat shows. But that doesn't apply to American Egyptologist Kara Cooney who seems to appear on the Late, Late Show on American TV on a semi-regular basis.

Ms Cooney is Assistant Professor of Egyptian Art and Architecture at UCLA and has excavating at the artisans' village of Deir el Medina in Egypt, Dahshur and various tombs at Thebes.

See her in conversation with show host Craig Ferguson where she talks about the recent problems in Egypt.
