Pacific Science Center: Wrath of the Gods: Disease and Deceased in the Ancient World

Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue. $5-$10.

Civics, Science

The study of ancient civilizations is now enhanced by forensic and genetic techniques. In the sixth installment of this fall’s special Ancient Egypt Distinguished Speakers Lecture Series, in association with the exhibit “Tutankhamun: The Golden King and The Great Pharaohsis” at Pacific Science Center, Dr. Angelique Corthals, Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology of Stony Brook University Medical School, discusses the use of forensic anthropology in the search for Queen Hatshepsut’s lost mummy—and touches on diseases, landscapes, and climate change in ancient Egypt. Presented by Pacific Science Center.

Tickets are $10/$5 for Pacific Science Center members at www.pacificsciencecenter.org or at the door beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door only for students with a valid ID.
