Lost Egypt exhibit at the Durham Museum

July 13th, 2015

LE_Pic4AERA’s work at the Heit el-Ghurab site (aka “The Lost City of the Pyramid Builders”) is featured in the travelling exhibit “Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science.” The exhibit features information on AERA’s archaeological work in Egypt as well as interviews with our team members, including Dr. Mark Lehner and Ana Tavares.

“Lost Egypt” will be at the Durham Museum in Omaha, Nebraska through September 6, 2015. For more information, please visit the Lost Egypt exhibition website.

Originally developed by the Center of Science and Industry (COSI), the Lost Egypt exhibit shows how modern science and technology can help reveal the mysteries of Egypt, its culture, and its people, using hands-on challenges, authentic artifacts, video interviews and photographs from archaeologists working in the field.
