CHANGES to the SSEA Symposium Roster of Speakers
The SSEA/SEEA is excited to announce the addition of Dr. Kerry Muhlestein of Brigham Young University to the lineup of symposium presenters for "DEATH ON THE NILE: Uncovering the Secrets of Egypt's Lost Tombs"
Prof. Muhlestein has recently taken over the BYU excavations at Seila in the Fayum. These excavations have revealed not only a lost pyramid of Snefru but what may be the largest cemetery ever uncovered in Egypt, estimated to contain a million mummies.
Our other speakers include:
* Prof. Suzanne Onstine of the University of Memphis, head of the excavations at the tomb of Panehsy and Renut in the Theban Necropolis
* Dr. Peter Sheldrick of the Dakhleh Oasis Project, who will be speaking on the human remains from the Dakhleh Oasis
* Mr. Edwin C. Brock, who has been working to document the royal sarcophagi in the Valley of the Kings and has worked with both the Theban Mapping Project and the Luxor Dewatering Project.
We regret to announce that, for health reasons, Dr. Otto Schaden will no longer be able to present to us at the symposium. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him in the near future.
We hope to announce a replacement speaker soon.
