The Conservator's Art: Preserving Egypt's Past, thru Dec 31, 2011

Join us as we present rarely seen ancient Egyptian artifacts studied using modern technologies including CT scans. Explore techniques and see results of extensive conservation carried out on pieces including crocodile mummies, statuary, mummy portraits, amulets, and stela collected through the patronage of Phoebe A. Hearst ca. 1900. We hope you will celebrate with us as we work to preserve cultural information for the benefit of future generations.
