Recognized as a foremost Egyptologist, Dr. Bob Brier (“Mr. Mummy”) will examine the fascination with the ancient world along the Nile and the events that fanned the flames of “Egyptomania” including Napoleon’s Egyptian campaign that led to a new decorative arts trend, the Suez Canal Big Dig, the carting of gigantic obelisks to Paris, London and New York and the opening of Tutankhamen’s tomb. The speaker will also present images of the collectibles inspired by this rage.
