Video: See 'Mr Mummy' lecture on 'Mummification: Resurrection of a Lost Art'

Egyptologist Bob Brier - known as 'Mr Mummy' - gave the 2009 Stuart L Wheeler Gallery Lecture. I have just come across the video of the event.

As Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy at the C W Post Campus of Long Island University, Brier has conducted pioneering research in mummification practices and has investigated some of the world's most famous mummies, including King Tut, Vladimir Lenin, Ramses the Great, Eva Peron (Evita) and the Medici family of Renaissance Italy.

He was the first person in 2,000 years to mummify a human cadaver using the exact techniques of the ancient Egyptians and will share his expertise on mummy preservation gained through experimental study. The lecture is lecture on "Mummification: Resurrection of a Lost Art".
