Latern Tour, Mummies of the World, Bowers Museum in Orange County

If you live in Southern California, here’s a kind of amazing event for you. The Mummies of the World exhibit is going dark on June 4: there’s going to be a nighttime, lantern light tour . . . and I get to lead it. We’re going to go through the exhibit at the Bowers Museum and talk about the history of mummification, some of the mummies in the show, and the theology and cultural significance of preserving and displaying the dead. It’s not exactly the same thing as visiting them in their tombs, but in Los Angeles . . . well, it’s as close as you’ll get. And the event will include a DJ (the dead don’t actually like silence, they get enough of it) and food (because they don’t get nearly enough of that.
