Meresamun


I just saw this on the cover page of CNN today. Which is awesome, because that mummy is in the building that I go to school in every day! I actually popped down after class on Thursday to check it out. HOW COOL! Man, I love this stuff. Here's the article.

Hi Josh! Thought you might enjoy checking this out--last week the University of Chicago Magazine launched an interactive feature that allows you to take an virtual peek into Meresamun's coffin. It includes audio clips of stories from Teeter and Vannier as well as gobs of CT imagery and photos from artifacts from the exhibit.

You can relive your visit to the OI and maybe find a few things you missed here:

Thanks so much! That link was awesome! I went there the day the exhibit opened but they were having a problem with the keyboard, so I didn't get to see any of that stuff yet. Thanks!

Oh, cool. I was hoping it would be something you hadn't seen. Of course, considering you're on campus and all... there was the possibility that you already heard about the Mag's feature. Enjoy the rest of your break!
