Unwrap the science of mummies with your students.Explore the scientific study of mummies and the cultural insights that science helps expose with a field trip to Mummies of the World. Through the use of modern scientific techniques, the mummies in the exhibition have revealed extraordinary details about the past: how tall people were, how long they lived, what kinds of food they ate and what diseases they suffered from. Clothing, jewelry and other personal artifacts placed on or with a mummy can tell us about the person's status and lifestyle, as well as the values, beliefs, and attitudes of the culture in which they lived.
Plan for about 60 to 90 minutes to explore the exhibition.
