2:00 today in West Philly, a special glimpse of a lost mummy. [Oct. 18th, 2014|10:05 am]

At 2:00 this afternoon West Philly's own Dr. Brad whafford is giving a lecture as part of International Archaeology day called " "Ur of the Chaldees: A Virtual Vision of Woolley's Excavations project," -- where he'll talk about the museums excavations in Iraq in the 1930's and how, looking through 70 year old reciepts he realized that there was a mummy missing and his quest to find it. (Breaking the suspense: he found it, and you can see it today if you stop by.)

The event is at 2:00 in the Rainey Auditorium at the University Museum. At 3:00 a grad student will hold a Q&A with the mummy. And you. Most likely, you ask the questions, the grad student answers them, the mummy remains silent.

Geekadelphia's article about the even is here, check it out.

*facepalm* You know you've spent too long on internet chat channels when you see "Ur of the Chaldees" and your brain immediately goes "No, you're of the Chaldees."
